Citizenship and Naturalization

We assist qualified candidates in obtaining citizenship through naturalization or a derivative status.  Citizenship allows candidates to live in the United States free from future worries about United States immigration status.  Citizenship through naturalization is generally a long-term process that requires years to achieve.  Candidates may become citizens, among other ways, if they are a:

  • spouse of a United States Citizen,
  • long-term lawful permanent residence (Green Card holder), or
  • qualifying member of the United States armed forces.

Candidates interested in citizenship should be prepared for a long-term petition process that will likely be accompanied by a petition for other interim immigration status before citizenship is ultimately obtained.
