Last week, we discussed how the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals might help some people who came into the country as minors to stay here temporarily. When you consider the benefits of DACA, you might start to wonder if you can use that as a stepping stone toward becoming a naturalized citizen. You might also be wondering how other immigrants can become citizens. If you are in Arizona, we can help you to determine if your case is one that meets the criteria for naturalization.
The process for becoming a naturalized citizen is one that is very involved. There are several things that have to be done in order for your application to be approved. You have to have been a lawful permanent resident for three years if you are married to an American citizen or five years if you aren't married to a citizen. Additionally, there is a good moral character criterion that might prove to be a bit challenging.
When you want to become a naturalized citizen, you have to ensure that you present your case honestly and strongly. You have to ensure that everything is handled in accordance with the applicable laws, guidelines and schedules. Forms have to be completed and filed, interviews must be completed, and other points must be met.
No matter where you are in the immigration process or on the path to citizenship, we can help you to present your case in the best way possible. We work with you every step of the way. You don't have to go through the immigration or naturalization process alone.
