The last time that Miles Apollo Neumann Auster entered the United States, it was an as Australian citizen. The next time that he enters the US, it will be as the first dual-citizen child of a multinational gay couple.
The child was born in Melbourne, Australia in the Spring of 2011. Miles’ birth certificate states that he has two mothers, an Australian one and an American one.
Since Miles was born in Australia, he was automatically granted Australian citizenship. In addition Miles’ parents hoped that since his other mother is American that he would be granted US citizenship as is the case to any other child born abroad to at least one American parent.
That was not the case. While the US decision was still pending, the younger brother of his American mother, Rachael Neumann died. The family got tourist visas, purchased tickets and attended the funeral in the US.
Upon arriving home to Australia, the family found out that Miles would indeed become an American citizen the next time a US customs agent stamps his visa. This would make Miles eligible for a US passport. There is one catch, the child must return before the April 12th deadline; before his first birthday.
However, the cost of the flight for the family to travel to the US is approximately $5,000. The family spent their savings on the most recent trip to the US, and is not sure if they can afford another trip to the states before April.
A US Birth Abroad certificate entitles a child of an American parent a US birth certificate, passport and Social Security if the child appears in person at the consulate.
