Naturalization is the process of becoming a U.S. citizen by meeting certain requirements and filing an application with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Generally, an individual must be a lawful permanent resident for 5 years before applying, but under certain circumstances an individual can apply after only 3 years.
A qualified immigration attorney can help you decide not only if you meet the basic requirements, but also if it is in your best interest to apply, what the likelihood of success is, or if there are any issues in your immigration history that suggest filing an application is unwise.
Contact our office to schedule an appointment to discuss these and other potential issues.
