Learn about the new naturalization test for Spanish speakers

Becoming an American citizen is not easy. One of the many challenges you face is passing the naturalization test. For those who speak fluent English, passing the test is tough enough. It is even tougher for those whose first language is Spanish.

How do you become naturalized?

As many families in Georgia know, moving can be exhausting. There is a lot to plan and countless important matters to consider and it is all too easy to forget something vital. This is even more the case when you are moving between countries, because on top of all the normal concerns, you also need to take immigration laws into account. In the United States, many new residents hold a green card. However, this is not always ideal as it still comes with the risk of deportation if something goes wrong.

What does it take to apply for U.S. Citizenship?

Millions of immigrants have come to this country looking for a new opportunity or a fresh start and millions have achieved that goal by working hard and living by the ideals upon which this country was founded. Many immigrants have established lives here, putting children in school, buying houses and embarking on careers in the land of opportunity. In fact, many have put down so many roots that they consider the United States their own country, but they still haven't gotten American citizenship.

What's required to apply for U.S. Citizenship?

Becoming a U.S. citizen is the dream of millions of people around the world. After all, the United States offers a host of opportunities for a better life. Unfortunately, the glut of aspiring citizens makes applying for citizenship a long and arduous process, and there is no guarantee that the application will be successful.

Potential disadvantages of dual citizenship

Immigrants in Georgia who wish to become naturalized citizens of the United States may want to find out whether their home country allows them to be dual citizens and whether having that status is advantageous. One issue they may wish to consider is income taxes. The United States taxes its citizens on their worldwide income, so there is often a possibility of double taxation. Those who are considering dual citizenship should find out whether their home country has an income tax treaty with the United States that would mitigate this problem.

Grounds for denaturalization

Immigrants who go through the process of naturalization to become U.S. citizens could lose their citizenship through denaturalization. Without citizenship, the immigrants may be removed from the country. Immigrants living in Georgia might want to be aware of the grounds for which their citizenship could be revoked.

Misleading and fraudulent immigration schemes

Georgia residents are likely aware that to live and work legally in the United States is an aspiration shared by countless people around the world. The road to becoming a permanent resident or citizen of the U.S. is often a long and frustrating one, and it is not uncommon for those taking this path to become the victims of schemes that promise a great deal but deliver very little. The USCIS advises those with immigration issues to deal only with attorneys or recognized organizations, but this has not stopped a number of unhelpful or fraudulent schemes from cropping up.

What Georgia residents can expect at a naturalization ceremony

Immigrants in Georgia who are obtaining their United States citizenship will go through a naturalization ceremony as the last step of the naturalization process. This occurs after the approval of Form N-400, Application for Naturalization. A ceremony may be judicial or administrative, and the oath may be administered by either the court or the United States Citizenship and Immigration office. It is necessary to complete Form N-445, Notice of Naturalization Oath Ceremony, prior to the ceremony, and that document will be checked by an official.

Naturalization eligibility

Georgia residents may wonder what requirements they need to meet in order to become naturalized U.S. citizens. The answer differs depending on whether the person is a U.S. national, a member of the armed forces currently serving or recently honorably separated from service, a military member who served during an active period of hostility, a lawful permanent resident who married a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent resident who immigrated in a manner other than marriage.
