United States citizenship is the goal for many who come to our country. This process typically takes years to complete during which immigration laws and regulations can change several times. You can make the process more manageable by working with an immigration attorney in Mooresville.
Immigration attorneys are U.S. licensed attorneys who make the focus of their law practice immigration and nationality laws, including citizenship. Immigration attorneys can also help with keeping families together in the United States and re-uniting families who have been separated. Because immigration law is federal law, immigration attorneys can help people no matter where the attorney is located inside the United States. Our attorney is located in North Carolina, specifically in the Mooresville, Huntersville, and Davidson area of Lake Norman.
To apply for US citizenship, many people choose to hire an immigration attorney who has successfully handled citizenship and naturalization cases. The process is complex and time-consuming, governed by complex and detailed rules that change frequently. Having someone with professional experience and up-to-date knowledge by your side through the process can make it much more manageable.
The US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) regulates naturalization requirements and policies. An immigration lawyer who handles naturalizations can help you through this process which sometimes lasts over a year or if there are other issues such as a criminal records or excessive time outside of the country.
Once you are a legal permanent resident, the requirements to become a naturalized citizen are the same for most people. The exceptions are for our military service members who have served for at least one year.
To become a citizen, most legal permanent residents must:
If you meet all these requirements, your attorney can file an application for you to naturalize to become a U.S. citizen. The application process varies depending on the local office’s ability to schedule you for your interview. At the interview, if you pass your civics, reading, and writing test, and you successfully meet all other requirements, the immigration officer will recommend you to become a U.S. citizen!
Having an experienced immigration lawyer who handles naturalization cases by your side will take some the stress away from a complicated process. Many people dream of the day they become U.S. citizens, and the dream should not be delayed because you are unsure if you qualify or attempt to go it alone without a lawyer.
Naturalization lawyers can help navigate the process because they know the law, the policies in their USCIS field offices, and understand they are helping you fulfill a dream that will impact your family for generations.
