Citizenship/Naturalization – N400
If you are looking to apply for U.S. citizenship, Potra Law Firm offers you many years of experience with the naturalization process, including completing the N400 application, passing the naturalization test, and attending the citizenship interview at USCIS. Once you become a U.S. citizen, you are afforded the same rights and privileges as all other U.S. citizens. This includes sponsoring your spouse, parents, children, or siblings for an immigrant visa, voting in Federal, State, and Local elections, and serving on a jury.
Generally, citizenship is available to Foreign Nationals who meet the following requirements:
Certain provisions exist that may allow the Foreign National to take the Naturalization test in their native language or waive the Naturalization test entirely because of medical disabilities or because you have been a Lawful Permanent Resident for a certain period of time. At Potra Law Firm, we will fully analyze your naturalization case to determine if you may qualify under these provisions.
If you meet the requirements above but have a criminal record, it is very important that you consult with an attorney from our firm regarding your eligibility to naturalize because certain crimes may disqualify you from naturalizing and becoming a U.S. citizen. We will analyze your criminal record closely to determine if you are eligible for citizenship and if applying for citizenship would jeopardize your Lawful Permanent Resident status. Make an appointment with our office today to learn more about the naturalization process and how we can help you become a citizen of the United States.
