Citizenship – Naturalization
Naturalization is the legal process by which foreign nationals acquire U.S. citizenship after the individual meets the requirements described in the Immigration and Nationality Act. The naturalization process is the last stage a foreign national must undergo in order to obtain their U.S. citizenship; at the same time, this process provides the immigration authorities the opportunity to review the foreign national’s immigration file to determine their eligibility to naturalize.
This final step can be very complex and, in some cases, can result in the foreign national being placed in removal (deportation) proceedings. Therefore, before you start the naturalization process, it is important that you obtain the legal advice and help of a qualified immigration attorney. We at Picado Immigration Law prepare you and accompany you to your interview. We make sure that the applicant meets all the requirements for naturalization as set forth in the Immigration and Nationality Act. Moreover, we are ready to advocate your eligibility for naturalization on your behalf.
If you have a medical condition that prevents you from learning English or US history and civics, you may qualify for an exception to certain naturalization requirements by submitting a properly completed N-648 form by the appropriate doctor. Immigration Attorney Juan Picado can help you and your family members throughout this confusing process.
