Many people from around the world dream of someday making it to the United States to start a new life as immigrants. Many also have a dream of not just coming to America to start a new life but also becoming U.S. citizens. At Miranda, Magden & Miranda, LLP, we have experienced immigration lawyers in the Salinas area to apply for and obtain U.S. citizenship through naturalization.
Naturalization is the process through which those born outside the United States apply and become U.S. citizens. This process begins with the filing of an N-400 Application for Naturalization with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). However, before applying for citizenship, there are eligibility requirements that must be met before the application is accepted for processing.
These requirements are as follows:
If you meet these requirements, and you originally obtained your permanent resident status (green card) properly, then you are eligible to apply and obtain U.S. citizenship through naturalization. Once you submit your application, you will be asked to have your biometrics taken, and after this is done, you will receive a letter asking you to go to the immigration office near you for a naturalization interview.
It is important to know, however, that even if you meet the eligibility criteria for naturalization, your application can still be denied for other reasons. This is why it is important to consult with an experienced naturalization attorney to make sure you successfully go through the naturalization process.
