Protect yourself as you go through the naturalization process

On Behalf of | Nov 14, 2018 | Citizenship

Immigrants who are pursuing citizenship in the United States have a long process before them. For many, the process they will go through is naturalization. This means that the person applies to become a citizen. They will then move through a formal process that ensures they are a good candidate and that they understand their responsibilities and rights as a citizen.

In order to become a naturalized citizen, you have to be a legal permanent resident. On top of this, you have to have lived in the country for a specific time. During this time, which is usually three to five years, you can’t get into legal troubles.

We know that this process might seem daunting at first. While there are some steps that are nerve-wracking, you should be able to get through many steps easily. One thing that you have to ensure is done just right is the paperwork. Any misstatements or errors on the documents and forms can mean that your petition is denied.

As you go through the process, make sure that you are doing things in the manner expected. You may have to take exams and go through interviews. We can help prepare you for these so that you know what to expect.

Always remember that the goal of your journey is to be able to take part in a Naturalization Oath Ceremony in which you will become a naturalized citizen and get the documentation you’ve worked so hard to receive. We are here to help you throughout the process, even if you think that you will face obstacles along the way.
