I’m naturalized citizen and my minor children entered the US with permanent resident cards, what would be the next steps to apply for their citizenship?

They entered several months ago. Which documents need to be attached, what’s U.S. citizenship under ​INA 320​ means. Do I have to pay any fees?Thanks

They would be eligible for US citzienship if they are the minor children of a US citizen who are US permanent residents.� They can either apply directly for US passports or first apply for a certificate of citizenship.� Either way they would be considered US citizens but having a certificate of citizenship is something that many people prefer to have in addition to the passport.
