“On March 16, 2014, as part of my “Solving The Problems of U.S. Citizenship” seminars, I participated, along with Professor Allison Christians and lawyer Andrew Grossman in a “FATCA – U.S. citizenship” seminar at McGill law school. A summary of Professor Christians’s FATCA presentation is here.
After the FATCA information session, I had the privilege of interviewing Mr. Grossman. The interview focused on many aspects of U.S. citizenship. Some topics discussed ranged from the very academic to the very practical.
The interview underscores the fact that the law of U.S. citizenship is very complicated. Those who were NOT born in the United States, should not presume that they are U.S. citizens. Further inquiry to determine whether you are a U.S. citizen is advisable.
Every person who is concerned by the “whether and what of U.S. citizenship” (or is consideringrelinquishing U.S. citizenship) will find some aspect of this interview to be of interest.
Thanks to Mr. Grossman for allowing me to interview him.”
