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.

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.

Brittni Rivera and Michelle were responsive, helpful and a pleasure to work with during my wife's spousal I-130 visa process. Brittni is an excellent immigration attorney. Thankful I was referred to her and my wife was able to come to Chicago on her immigrant visa. 5 stars for professional service!
