For many immigrants, the ultimate goal of the immigration journey is to become a United States citizen. Citizenship is the culmination of years of hard work to arrive, establish roots, and flourish in this country. Through the naturalization process, a person is no different from a born citizen. The benefits of becoming a citizen include the ability to vote in elections and file petitions for certain family members. The attorneys at Kempster, Corcoran, Quiceno & Lenz-Calvo have considerable experience helping permanent residents naturalize to become citizens. We are acutely aware of the strict requirements to become a citizen, including English language ability, residence in the U.S., duration of permanent residency, and moral character issues. Our attorneys have also successfully helped clients obtain certificates confirming that they are citizens. If you are a citizen already or seek to naturalize, we can provide reliable and knowledgeable service throughout the process. We can also guide you through the more complicated issues involving disability exceptions, residence requirements, and criminal issues.
Whether you recently received permanent resident status or you believe you are eligible to naturalize, we encourage you to please contact our office and schedule an appointment with an attorney for more information on citizenship and naturalization.
