I was hoping to find some current experiences with my question, but I couldn’t find anything. Anyone have experience or knowledge with the following experience?
I (male, US citizen, living in NYC) and my girlfriend (Taiwan citizen, living in Taiwan) are expecting our first daughter this October. Fortunately her family is very supportive and will help me take care of my girlfriend and the newborn while I have to work in the US.
Q1) Anyone know the process for my soon to be born daughter to get a US passport while in Taiwan?
I checked the AIT and it seems like it should be a no brainer even if we have the daughter through wedlock. I meet the living outside of Taiwan residency requirement, I will claim paternity and I acknowledge being financial responsible for her. One of the issue I’m worried about is that we aren’t married yet so we do not have a marriage certificate. The site says the marriage certificate isn’t need if we are not married (whew).
Q2) But will AIT or any agency require proof that I am the father? I’m sure my name and her name will both be on the birth certificate and I’m hoping that is sufficient.
