Understanding Citizenship & Naturalization in the U.S.
Citizenship and naturalization are two different processes. Citizenship is available to individuals who were born abroad to parents who are U.S. citizens or minor children of naturalized citizens. Naturalization is the process of acquiring citizenship for people who were born in another country. In order to become a naturalized citizen, it is necessary to establish residency in the United States, as well as meet other certain requirements in order to be qualified for this process.
The Naturalization Process
The naturalization process can be complex; you must complete an application, establish residency, and meet other requirements. If you aren’t sure whether to apply for a certificate of citizenship or naturalization, or if you need assistance with the application process, an experienced attorney can help. Our citizenship and naturalization attorney in Jacksonville can explain the requirements and guide you through the process.
The requirements of the U.S. naturalization process include:
- Establishing residency
- Completing the application
- Passing an immigration examination
- Promising loyalty to the United States
- Being of good moral character
Certain factors—such as owing taxes, being behind in child support payments, and other issues—can lead to your application being denied. Our immigration attorney can help you navigate the process, assist you in completing all necessary forms, offer advice, help you prepare for the naturalization interview, and appear with you at the interview.
