What Are The Citizenship And Naturalization Processes?

Citizenship is bestowed automatically on people born in the U.S. or born to parents who are American citizens. For immigrants, you must go through a process called naturalization. This involves:

  1. Meeting the eligibility requirements
  2. File Form N-400, the Application for Naturalization and pay the fees
  3. Submit biometrics, if applicable
  4. Attend an interview at a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration (USCIS) office
  5. Receive a final decision

If the USCIS approves your petition, you can look forward to taking the Oath of Allegiance to the United States and receiving your green card. If not, though, you can work with an immigration appeals attorney to appeal the denial.

How Long Does Naturalization Take?

The naturalization process is long, intensive and exhausting. It usually takes around two years for the average applicant to become a naturalized citizen. However, many problems could arise for you during the stages of naturalization to make your journey even longer. Our immigration lawyers work with you carefully to anticipate any challenges before they can arise and resolve them immediately if they do. That way, you have the smoothest course to citizenship as possible.
