Naturalization/Citizenship

Most Americans believe that there is a line that people must pass through in order to become a citizen. This is an understandable, but misleading, perception. One thing is certain, attaining citizenship does end you personal immigration battles.

What To Expect In The Naturalization Process

Lawful permanent residents of the USA may be eligible to become U.S. citizens through naturalization after:

  • They had maintained a continuous period of physical presence in the USA
  • Lawful permanent residency for a continuous period of time
  • Good moral character for the "statutory period"
  • Show knowledge of English and American history/civics/geography

Some permanent residents will become U.S. citizens "automatically" by operation of law without the necessity of naturalization. Oftentimes, these particular aliens do not even know they are U.S. citizens already.

The law office of Mark Citrin, P.A., has decades of successful experience dealing with all naturalization issues, including good moral character, derivative citizenship, seeking medical/psychological waivers of the English and civics requirements. We have represented countless clients at naturalization examinations assuring that they are treated with respect by USCIS and their rights are protected so that they have the best opportunity to qualify for naturalization.
