Becoming a United States Citizen

The main reasons for needing an experienced immigration attorney include applying for citizenship, claiming asylum, and seeking a permanent visa (immigrant visa).

Naturalization process

To be naturalized as a citizen of the United States, there are a few standard requirements, such as:

  • Permanent residency (green card)
  • Be a person of good moral character
  • Reach the age of maturity when applying (i.e., 18 years old)

Importantly, if you entered the United States illegally, misrepresented your immigration status on an immigration application, or have a criminal history, you may be deemed inadmissible for citizenship and/or entry to the United States. Notably, certain criminal offenses may tarnish the “good moral character requirement.” If you are accused of a crime, the potential repercussions on your immigration status should spur you to speak with an experienced immigration attorney to review your case. Based on your specific inadmissibility issues, let us help you explore your options.

For many of these requirements, however, there are exceptions. An experienced attorney can evaluate your immigration circumstances and work with you to establish the best possible case for immigration.
