Immigration law in the United States is extremely complex. When trying to obtain citizenship status, there is a lot of red tape to overcome and mountains of paperwork. Most people find dealing with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) intimidating, as well. After all, they are the deciding factor in whether you are granted citizenship. People go through these processes because becoming a United States citizen is so worthwhile. A Jasper County citizenship attorney can help you reach that milestone, so you can start living your life as an American citizen.
If you are an immigrant living in the United States, you may qualify for citizenship if:
If any of these statements apply, you can apply for U.S. citizenship through the naturalization process.
If you qualify to apply for citizenship, you must do so using form N-400. Along with this form, you must include copies of your green card, passport photos, and any required supporting documentation, such as a marriage certificate. There is also a fee to submit the application. A month or two after your application is filed, you will be sent a date and time to have your fingerprints taken.
The next step in the process is the interview. It can take a long time for an interview to be scheduled. Sometimes it is as long as one year from the date your fingerprints were taken. During the interview, you will be asked several questions about the U.S. government and American history. Interviewers are also testing your English during the interview. If you do not pass these tests, you are not eligible for citizenship.
If you do pass the test, you will be sworn in as a citizen of the United States. This is the most exciting part of the process, and you will receive your certificate of citizenship during the ceremony.

One of my relatives just received her Green Card and the credit goes to Kevin Raica and his Paralegal, Aga Bogdanowicz. The final “Adjust Status Petition” including the supporting documentation was 128 pages long! There is no way we could have compiled this level of detail much less have it be error free on our own. The whole process took around 8 months which is to be expected; however, the Petition package was so complete that no interview was required. If you ever have need of immigration legal service you just can’t go wrong with Kevin Raica and the immigration…
