Orange County Naturalization and Citizenship Attorney
Helping Immigrants through the Process of Becoming a U.S. Citizen
If you have permanent resident status in the U.S., you may be wondering about the possible opportunity of becoming a U.S. citizen. Citizenship can come with many benefits, including the right to vote, international travel without restrictions, more healthcare and government benefits, and the opportunity to bring more family members to the U.S. sooner. Additionally, citizens will not face the possibility of deportation and removal if they commit a crime or violate other laws.
The citizenship and naturalization process has many requirements, and you should never hesitate to discuss your citizenship goals with an experienced Santa Ana immigration lawyer. Brudner Law helps many clients in and around Santa Ana with the naturalization and citizenship process, so please contact us today to discuss your individual situation.
To become a citizen, you must do the following:
- Maintain permanent resident status for five years (or three years for spouses of U.S. citizens)
- Prepare and submit an application for naturalization to USCIS
- Have an interview with an immigration official who will review your application and eligibility
- Undergo a background check and review of your international travel
- Take a U.S. civics and language test
- Swear allegiance to the U.S.
- Attend a naturalization ceremony
Each step is extremely important, and it helps to have the guidance of a Santa Ana immigration lawyer throughout the naturalization and citizenship process, from start to finish.
