Atlanta Citizenship/Naturalization Lawyer
We Can Help You Become a U.S. Citizen
Citizenship/Naturalization is the legal process by which an immigrant becomes a U.S. citizen. If you would like to obtain U.S. citizenship for yourself or your child, the Law Offices of Ernest C. Egoh, P.A., can help you every step of the way.
While it may be tempting for one to consider this process an easy one and thereby decide to file by him or herself, an experienced attorney’s help can make sure the citizenship process is done correctly the first time and avoid delays or requests for evidence from USCIS as a result of missing documentation or an improperly filed application. An experienced attorney may also be able to help you overcome obstacles to immigration such as a past criminal conviction. A non-citizen’s past criminal record, no matter how far back in time it occurred, can bar an individual from naturalization and may lead to commencement of removal proceedings and the loss of permanent residence.
What are the requirements for naturalization?
To become a U.S. citizen, you must meet the following requirements:
- Live in the United States for at least five years (or three years if you are married to a U.S. citizen). You must be physically in the United States for at least half of that time;
- Live continuously in the United States from the date of your application up to the time of citizenship;
- Be a person of good moral character; and
- Meet requirements for literacy and knowledge of U.S. government and U.S. history.
Applicants are tested in their ability to read, write and speak English. However, depending on age and how long applicant has been a lawful permanent resident, this requirement may be waived and applicant may be examined in his or her native language.
