Seeking naturalization in the United States

For many people living in Washington, D.C. and other areas of the country, one of their goals in life is to become a citizen of the United States. Despite their desire and willingness to work hard, the naturalization process is often confusing for people who are unfamiliar with it. Following all the steps appropriately could make the difference in whether or not the process is successfully completed.

There are several criteria that individuals seeking to be naturalized must meet before they can continue the process. First, they must be 18 years old or older and both a lawful permanent resident and physically present in the country for five years prior. To successfully apply, individuals must be of good moral character and able to speak English.

Once these criteria are met, it's possible to proceed with the application for naturalization, but there are several other steps that follow. Applicants must attend an interview, pass an English test and pass a civics test. They will also have be fingerprinted. When these steps are complete, an oath of allegiance to the united States must be taken.

Many people in Washington D.C. have a great deal of hope placed on the naturalization process. Unfortunately, successfully completing it is dependent upon fully understanding the steps, which may be difficult without previous experience even with the guidance provided by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Fortunately, an experienced immigration attorney can help applicants complete the application and prepare for the test and interview, ensuring that they fully understand the process that they face.
