What is Naturalization? Congress established the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) which set the requirements that a foreign citizen or national is required to meet before he or she may become a U.S. Citizen. Once the requirements have been met, the US government may grant the foreign citizen or national U.S. Citizenship. To know what and how to meet the requirements set forth by congress, it is often a good idea to seek the advice of an Immigration Attorney.
To apply for naturalization, the petitioner may seek the services of an experienced Immigration Attorney to make sure that package is sent out correctly with all the accurate information in order to prevent any delays.
How do you know if you qualify for Naturalization? Again, it is advised to seek help from an experienced Immigration Attorney in order to make sure that you qualify for Naturalization. Some of the requirements that must be met include but are not limited to establishing permanent residency in the US for at least 5 years and/ or you have qualifying service in the US armed forces. Again, these are only a few examples of how a petitioner may qualify for Naturalization.
Finally, if you are the child of parents that obtained US citizenship before you became 18 years of age, you may already be a citizen and don’t need to apply for naturalization. Your parents could either be biological or adoptive parents. To make sure you fall into this category, it is advised you seek the counsel of an experienced immigration attorney.
