Eligibility and attention to detail key factors to citizenship

No matter where your country of origin happens to be, if you hope to become a U.S. citizen, there are definite steps to follow. U.S. immigration law often changes and can be quite complex and difficult to understand, especially if your particular situation involves a significant language barrier. There are immigrants who prefer to take matters into their own hands and enter the United States by any means possible; this often winds up causing those who act outside accepted parameters a lot of trouble.

Getting to America and residing here as an immigrant is challenging enough without adding complications, such as those that can be expected if you cross the nation's borders under an undocumented status. If you know where to reach out for support, you can learn all you need to know about obtaining legitimate citizenship without placing your freedom and status at risk.

Keeping these basic steps in mind may help

You no doubt already understand that you can't simply decide to live as a U.S. citizen without navigating the process set in place by the federal government for those who wish to do so. In other words, wanting to live as a citizen does not make you a citizen. The following list includes basic steps typically followed by those who wish to apply for U.S. citizenship:

  • Eligibility: You must be able to meet various requirements to be eligible to file a U.S. citizenship application. For instance, you must be able to speak, read and write in English; you must also be at least age 18. There are other eligibility requirements as well, and it's crucial to make sure you understand each one and are able to fulfill them all before pursuing citizenship.
  • Application: Like most other processes associated with the federal government, there is typically a lot of paperwork involved when applying to become a U.S. citizen. Some people choose to enlist the aid of immigration advocates who are well-versed in U.S. immigration law in order to make sure they are not overlooking any important factor when working their way through as many as 10 pages of application forms.
  • Fees: When you submit your application for U.S. citizenship, the Department of Homeland Security will expect you to send appropriate funds to cover the fees associated with your application. As there are rules regarding forms of payment, you may want to seek clarification before sending any money.
  • Interview: At some point, a United States Citizenship and Immigration Services officer will interview you regarding your request to become a U.S. citizen.
  • Tests: The path to U.S. citizenship also includes various tests, including but not limited to English tests and those regarding civics and basic U.S. history information.

As you look forward to the day when you are recognized as a U.S. citizen, you may face various challenges or obstacles that impede your ultimate goals. Others in Georgia have successfully overcome such problems by reaching out for support from experienced U.S. immigration and naturalization law attorneys.
