Naturalization is the process through which an individual can become a U.S. citizen. Once you have become a lawful citizen of the United States, you are entitled to certain protections, rights, and responsibilities.
The first step in seeking citizenship is to determine if you are eligible for naturalization. Potential citizens must:
Have obtained a green card for at least five years (or three years in cases wherein the applicant is a spouse of a current U.S. citizen)
Satisfy a variety of additional requirements, including:
Being at least 18 years of age at the time of application
Being able to read, write, and speak basic English
Being of good moral character
Confirming your eligibility for citizenship can be difficult because every individual's situation is different. Working with an immigration attorney is the best way to simplify this complex task.
Once you've determined that you can apply for citizenship through naturalization, you'll be required to complete the 10 steps to naturalization. This process involves accomplishing a variety of tasks, including:
Applying for naturalization through the completion and submission of Form N-400
Paying applicable fees
Taking the U.S. Naturalization test
Completing an interview with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
After your interview, you will receive your decision from the USCIS. If your application for citizenship is granted, you will receive a notice to take the Oath of Allegiance to the United States. If your application is denied, you have a few options for how to proceed. Appealing your denial with the help of an attorney is one of those options. At The Anyere Law Firm, LLC, we skillfully advocate on behalf of denied applicants through the appeals process because we believe that everyone deserves a fair chance to pursue their goal of becoming a citizen.
