This letter is used as part of our citizenship correction process.  It is sent after you have followed step 3.13 and gotten a passport as a "national of the United States" using the modified DS-11 form we provide.  The letter should be sent to the Department Of State FOIA office no sooner than about three months after you get your passport to ensure that the paperwork has been sent to Washington D.C. and archived before you go asking for it.  The result of this letter should be a certified copy of your modified DS-11 form which properly reflects your true status as a "national" of the United States*** of America but not a STATUTORY "U.S. citizen" under 8 U.S.C. 1401.  The certified copy of your approved DS-11 is a substitute for the "Certificate of non-citizen National Status" that you can request under 8 U.S.C. 1452, and asking for it is necessary because the Department of State has positively refused it's legal duty under 8 U.S.C. 1452 to issue "Certificates of non-citizen national status".  See the following link for an explanation of this situation:
