Not everyone qualifies for U.S. citizenship simply because they request it. Instead, if you have foreign citizenship, you must meet certain requirements and go through the process called naturalization. Some of the requirements under the law include the following:
An experienced immigration lawyer can help you determine whether you meet the requirements necessary to qualify for naturalization or whether you qualify for a waiver or exemption of certain requirements due to special circumstances. Such circumstances may include certain medical conditions, the applicant’s age, or whether the applicant is a member of the military or married to a U.S. citizen. In addition, some people are able to bypass the naturalization process by deriving citizenship from one or both of their parents.
Naturalization does not occur overnight. Instead, you must take several specific steps in order to obtain citizenship. Some of these steps include:
While many people applying for naturalization have no criminal record or issues from their past that may interfere with the process, many individuals have made an error in judgment in their lives that may make obtaining citizenship more challenging. An experienced Chicago citizenship and naturalization attorney can help you try to overcome past criminal convictions, allegations of domestic violence, or other legal issues by framing your situation in the best way possible to the USCIS.
Becoming a U.S. citizen is extremely rewarding; however, the process is not always an easy one.

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!
