Resolving Immigration ProblemsIn An Honest & Responsible Manner

What do you need to apply for citizenship and naturalization?

Immigrants who are currently living in California will likely have a lot of questions regarding their immigration statuses and how to transition from immigrant to citizen. Achieving citizenship and naturalization is not something that can be done overnight. It takes time, and the process can be somewhat intimidating. Before beginning the process, it is important to know which documents are required when applying for U.S. citizenship.

The application for citizenship can seem pretty intense. There is actually an extensive list of documents required for those wishing to obtain U.S. citizenship; however, not everything on that list is required for every person. Requirements for each individual are unique to his or her specific situation, and, as such, some may be required to submit documents that others do not need to worry about. A few examples of necessary documents include:

  • Green card
  • Two photographs of applicant
  • Documentation of any name changes
  • Tax forms
  • Marriage information

Application errors and missing documentation are two of the leading causes for application denial. Because individual circumstances will determine exactly what is needed for a citizenship application, an immigration attorney can assist in this process by ensuring the proper forms and documents are submitted. The assistance offered by these individuals can help immigrants get through the application process as quickly and smoothly possible.

Immigrants in California who are considering applying for citizenship and naturalization do not have to work through the process alone. Assistance is available to help prevent errors that will delay the application process. An experienced immigration attorney can answer any and all questions regarding application requirements and help those interested in achieving U.S. citizenship reach their goal.
