Helping Clients Obtain United States Citizenship
Once you become a U.S. citizen, you no longer have to worry about deportation, secure the right to vote, become eligible for federal jobs, can run for public office, and can petition for a visa on behalf of a spouse, fiancé or family member. At the Vissia Calderon, our goal is to help guide our clients on their path to U.S. citizenship. We interview our clients extensively about their background, helping them overcome any barriers they may face along the way.
We pride ourselves on thoroughly preparing our clients for each step of the citizenship and naturalization process.
Citizenship Through Naturalization
The process by which a foreigner becomes a U.S. citizen is called naturalization. Generally, individuals who are applying for naturalization will go through the following steps:
- Preparing and filing the naturalization application
- Attending the naturalization interview and taking the civics and English tests
- Participating in the Oath Ceremony
In order to become a U.S. citizen, you must meet the following requirements:
- Be age 18 or older
- Be a permanent resident for a certain amount of time (usually 5 years, but 3 years for spouses of U.S. citizens and 1 year for those in active service in the U.S. military)
- Have a basic knowledge of U.S. history and government
- Have a period of continuous residence and physical presence in the U.S.
- Be able to read, write and speak English (subject to some exceptions)
- Be a person of good moral character
We help educate and prepare our clients for each step of the naturalization process, so they are never surprised at any point of their naturalization application. We will collect all the documentation needed to complete the process and make sure all the necessary paperwork is filed, ensuring that no detail is overlooked.
Citizenship Through Parents
You may already be a U.S. citizen and need not apply for naturalization if your parent(s) became a U.S. citizen before you reached the age of 18. If you have a U.S. citizen parent, we can help determine whether you are already a U.S. citizen and secure your certificate of citizenship.
