Orlando Naturalization Attorney

Gaining U.S. Citizenship through Naturalization

Lawful permanent residents of this country are eligible for United States citizenship under certain circumstances as laid out by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Green card holders who qualify can apply for naturalization, which is the procedure for a foreign national who wants to obtain citizenship. Criteria for applying for naturalization include continuous residence in this country for at least 5 years and being at least 18 years old at the time of application. It is also necessary to prove that the applicant has good moral character and has not been arrested or convicted of a serious crime while residing in the U.S. Applicants will be required to pass tests in basic United States history and English language skills. There are special provisions for members of the armed forces who want to seek naturalization.

The United States is one of the top destinations for immigrants from around the world, and the Federal government is determined to limit the number of requests for naturalization that are approved each year. A knowledgeable Orlando immigration attorney can assist with the application process, including providing guidance in filling out the Form N-400, Application for Naturalization. An attorney can also represent the case against U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (UCIS) if they denied the application for any reason, by filing a Request for Hearing on a Decision in Naturalization Proceedings. It is necessary to submit this form within 30 days of the denial letter. Even when this hearing results in a denial from UCIS, the case can be brought for review to the U.S. District Court.
