How Our Immigration Lawyers will Help You Obtain Citizenship
The United States immigration law as well as the entire immigration process are quite complicated and difficult to understand. Most of all, these laws continue to evolve with a change in presidency. Naturalization is an important part of immigration law. The process of naturalization consists of several steps before an individual can become a US citizen.
In order to get naturalized and become a U.S. citizen, you first need to find out whether you are eligible for the process. The USCIS provides a worksheet to help foreign-born individuals and immigrants to determine their eligibility for naturalization. The sheet contains a total of 15 questions. If you can answer Yes to all these questions, you will likely have naturalization eligibility. But the terminology used in these matters is hard to understand for people. It is a good idea to turn to an immigration lawyer, who specializes in the process of naturalization and acquiring citizenship, and find out whether you are eligible to apply for citizenship in the U.S.
Making mistakes can cause a wide range of issues and delay the entire process. Worse still, your application may get rejected altogether or your case denied. For example, having an issue in your immigration or criminal history can lead to denial. You may also have to face deportation proceedings as a result of the immigration issues.
Since every case is unique, our lawyer will closely review your citizenship case and develop the most ideal solutions to your problems as well as make sure no mistakes are made in your application forms.
