I came to the u.s. in 1978 at the age of 8 as an lpr. I was adopted by my stepfather in 1979 at the age of 9. In 1985 my mother became a citizen and in 1986 my stepfather became a citizen (I was 15 and 16 at the times) they never applied for a certificate for me. I was living with them when they naturalized. I am now 41 and have convictions. Did I derive citizenship through them? Will my convictions play a role I started getting into trouble at 21.
