United States Citizenship

The benefits of becoming a United States citizen are widely recognized throughout the world. There is a long history of immigrants coming to the U.S. to realize their dreams, seeking business and economic opportunities as well as religious and personal freedoms. The final step to becoming a citizen of the U.S. is the filing of a naturalization petition. However, if inappropriately filed, or incorrectly filed, a naturalization petition can lead to a denial and even deportation from the United States.

Naturalization Process

When an individual takes actions to become a legal U.S citizen, the process is called naturalization. In most circumstances, the person seeking to be naturalized has held a green card or permanent visa for a long period of time before they decide to takes the steps towards naturalization. How and when can you apply for US citizenship once you have a green card? While most often you must be a lawful permanent resident to apply for naturalization, there may be certain narrow exceptions to this rule. Please contact our offices for specific answers in your situation.

The application and interview process for U.S. citizenship is lengthy and time consuming. Additionally, the procedural rules of The Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (BCIS) are extremely strict. As qualified immigration attorneys, we can help you sift through the very detailed requirements and make your application process move smoothly. We can also help you prepare for the interview and collect all the proper documentation for the application. For people who are uncertain if they already are U.S. citizens, we’ll help you determine which citizenship law applies to your situation.

Interview With The Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services

Upon completion of the application process for citizenship, the applicant will be scheduled for an interview with the BCIS. Because of the great backlog of cases in the BCIS, the applicant will most likely receive an interview after at least 90 days has passed since the application was filed. Most applicants may not expect an interview for many months after they apply. The interview will be conducted in English unless you qualify for a few very specific exceptions.

Citizenship

Citizenship is the status of a person when they are recognized under the custom or law of a state that gives that person the rights and duties of citizenship. Most often this means that a person, recognized as a citizen, is able to vote, work, and live in the country, as well as receive legal protections under that country. That citizen may also be subject to following certain duties, such as following the country’s law or paying taxes.

A person can acquire U.S. citizenship or nationality through a variety of means. When a person is born in the United States or its territories they are legally citizens of the U.S. under “jus soli,” which means “right of the soil.” This is the legal right to citizenship or nationality given to a child that is born in the territory of a state. The United States adopted the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution in 1868. This Amendment held that, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” For those not born under “jus soli,” there are additional ways to receive U.S. citizenship or nationality.

San Diego – United States Citizenship Lawyer

Hiring the best attorney for your immigration case can prove pivotal in your life, much like a marriage. A licensed lawyer is authorized and qualified to assist you with your immigration case or green card application. Unlike consultants,  attorneys have completed extensive education and training before being licensed to represent clients. Just like a life partner, you want an attorney you can trust, communicate with, and relate to. Most importantly, you want an attorney who knows how to successfully proceed with your case so that you achieve the desired outcome. While many legitimate community and religious organizations provide immigration-related services, there are those who advertise as legal “consultants” or “notarios publicos”  but are not authorized or qualified to help with immigration law-related matters. You face a big challenge, the power of the United States government. Don’t face it alone. Contact a San Diego – United States Citizenship Lawyer at Superior Immigration Lawyers.
