Becoming a United States citizen can be a difficult and confusing process, much like obtaining a green card and permanent resident status. The entire process can feel daunting, but with the assistance of a skilled Hammond citizenship attorney, it can become a lot less intimidating.
There are countless benefits to retaining an experienced Illinois immigration attorney prior to submitting your application. If you attempt to apply and have a criminal arrest on your record, this can result in the start of removal proceedings, even if you have legal permanent resident status in the country.
At Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLP, we have been assisting clients for over 40 years with all of their immigration needs. Our team will provide personalized representation and offer you step-by-step guidance and assistance to help you gain your United States citizenship.
In order to apply for United States citizenship, you need to meet certain requirements first. These include:
If you meet the above qualifications, then you can submit an application for citizenship along with passport photos, a copy of your green card, the required filing fees, and any necessary supporting documentation. After one to two months, you will be notified that you need to come in for fingerprints and biometrics information.
You will then be scheduled for an interview which can take anywhere from several months to over a year to get. The interviewers will test your knowledge of U.S. history, government, and how well you can speak, write and read English. In order to be considered for approval, you have to pass all the tests. If approved, you will be notified to attend a swearing-in ceremony where you will receive your citizenship certificate.
At Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLP, we understand how complex immigration laws in the United States can be. We thoroughly prepare each client individually for the USCIS interview, so they can realize their dream of becoming a United States citizen. If you need assistance or have questions on the process of becoming a United States citizen, our Hammond citizenship attorneys are here to help. Contact our 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!
