If your father became a US citizen when you were 14 does this automatically make you a US citizen?

The following guidelines must be met before the child is considered a US citizen: * the child is under 18 years of age; * the child is or becomes a permanent resident (not a greencard holder); * at least one parent of the child became a sworn naturalized US citizen after February 27, 2001; * the child lives with and is in the legal custody of the US citizen parent. Visit the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service website for more information.
