Philadelphia Citizenship Lawyer
An Immigration Attorney is indispensable for any client seeking to apply for citizenship through naturalization in the United States. A Philadelphia immigration lawyer at The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. can provide legal representation to clients looking to obtain citizenship by determining a constructive approach and guiding clients throughout the process.
The benefits and freedom which accompany becoming a legal United States citizen are almost endless. These privileges include:
- The right to vote.
- The right to obtain a U.S. passport and travel freely.
- The right to work as a federal employee.
- The right to collect federal benefits.
- The right to start or provide for the family you have or want to have in this country.
The first step in this exciting process should be to find an immigration lawyer in Philadelphia to guide you through the proceeding steps, and to ensure that the process runs smoothly and effectively. It is important to provide your attorney with all essential information that could affect your citizenship, in both negative and positive ways. It is especially important to obtain an attorney if you have had previous legal issues, such as a criminal history or failure to pay taxes or child support, which may affect your ability to meet the good moral character requirement.
To apply to become a United States citizen, you need to hold a green card (Lawful Permanent Resident) for at least 5 years. If you are married to a U.S. Citizen, the wait is reduced to three years instead. After this wait, the next step in this process is to fill out a citizenship application (FORM N-400). Small mistakes on this application can cost you time, money, and even your opportunity to become a citizen. That is why it is critical to have one of our immigration lawyers in Philadelphia guide you through the application. We can also provide you with resources to ensure you meet all other requirements, such as English literacy and knowledge of U.S. History and Government.
