Citizenship

Democracy depends on educated citizens sharing their voice.  Let us help you become a full member of American society.

Legal permanent residents of the United States may apply for their citizenship after a certain amount of time residing in the country. Also called naturalizing, applying for citizenship entails passing a written and oral exam on United States civics and basic knowledge of the English language. Naturalized citizens enjoy full benefits in the United States, including the right to vote, the right to travel, and the ability to immigrate some other family members.

Some applicants may be eligible for modifications in the citizenship process as a result of military service, marriage to a United States Citizen, disability, or advanced age.  As with all matters pertaining to immigration, anyone with prior criminal convictions should consult an attorney before submitting any application.
