The Citizenship Process:
Obtaining US citizenship involves several essential steps, but with our skilled legal team on your side, you can navigate this process smoothly and confidently. Here are the key steps in the citizenship application process:
Eligibility Evaluation: Our attorneys will conduct a thorough review of your immigration history and status to determine your eligibility for US citizenship. Generally, you must be a lawful permanent resident (green card holder) for a specific period and meet other criteria.
Form N-400 Application: We will assist you in completing Form N-400, the Application for Naturalization, and ensure all required information is accurately provided.
Biometrics and Interview: After submitting your application, you will attend a biometrics appointment to provide fingerprints and photographs. Subsequently, you will undergo an interview with a USCIS officer to review your application and test your English language and civics knowledge.
English and Civics Tests: Part of the citizenship process includes demonstrating proficiency in English and knowledge of US history and government through the naturalization test.
Oath of Allegiance: If your application is approved, you will attend a naturalization ceremony and take the Oath of Allegiance, officially becoming a US citizen.
Basis for Eligibility:
To be eligible for US citizenship, you must meet certain requirements, including but not limited to:
Being a lawful permanent resident for a specific period.
Demonstrating continuous residence and physical presence in the US.
Being of good moral character.
Being able to read, write, and speak basic English.
Demonstrating knowledge of US history and government.
