If you are interested in becoming a United States citizen, it is important to understand the eligibility requirements and naturalization process prior to starting the application process. In addition, it is recommended that you speak with an East Chicago citizenship attorney. The process to obtain United States citizenship is not an easy one, but with the assistance of a skilled Illinois immigration attorney, it can feel less stressful and intimidating.
The team of attorneys at Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC has been providing immigration assistance to clients around the country for over 40 years. If you have questions about the citizenship process or need help starting your application, we are here to help. Contact our Chicago office today to schedule an appointment.
Your attorney can advise you on how each requirement applies to your specific situation, but here is a general outline on what the eligibility requirements are for U.S. citizenship:
To start your application process, you will file a Form N-400 with the USCIS, along with a copy of your green card, passport photos, the required filing fee, and any necessary supporting documentation. Once the documents are received, you will receive a notice to make an appointment for fingerprints and a criminal background check.
Next is your interview date. This can take anywhere from a couple of months to over a year. During your interview, the USCIS officer will ask about your English proficiency and have you answer questions on U.S. government and history topics. If you pass this exam, you will receive an appointment for your swearing-in ceremony and receive your certificate of naturalization.
If you need assistance with applying for your citizenship or other immigration matters, the experienced immigration attorneys at Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLP are here to help. Contact our Chicago office today to schedule a consultation.
Simply put, I shouldn't be here. I had a really complex immigration case and all the firms that we consulted with told us that I virtually had no chance of staying here in the United States for my son. All except Kriezelman Burton.
Justin Burton is an amazing lawyer that has been assisting me for 19 years! Starting with my green card process, to becoming a citizen! Then guiding my husband as well.
Justin Burton is a great lawyer who will go above and beyond through every step of the process to help you out. He is an honest and straightforward lawyer that will look out for your best interests. He really knows the law and will tell you the possibilities of the outcome depending on your case and background. I had a very complicated case (at least that I was told by previous attorneys). After 20 years of denials and six different lawyers, I was finally referred to Mr. Burton and it was the best thing that happened in my case. After…
Professional, with huge knowledge. Mr. Justin Burton is the best. Five stars is not enough!
