Both long and complicated, legal help is needed throughout every step. At Taylor Lee & Associates LLC, we help residents in the Atlanta area and northern Georgia overcome the obstacles they face and resolve problems that arise.

The Need For An Attorney When Applying For Citizenship

If you are a lawful permanent resident and over 18 years old, you are eligible to apply to become a U.S. citizen. Certain requirements exist that include:

  • A valid green card during the five years prior to the filing
  • Marriage to a U.S. citizen after three years and a valid green card
  • A veteran who enlisted and served in the U.S. Armed Forces during war (permanent residence is not required)

The complex process starts with filling out a U.S. Citizenship Application Form N-400 with a photo and supporting documents. Once all the naturalization and immigration forms are filed and processed, newly sworn-in American citizens can:

  • Vote in city, county, state and national elections
  • Reunite family and children from different countries in the United States
  • Become eligible for Social Security and Medicare benefits
  • Work for a federal government agency
  • Run for elected office

The benefits of American citizenship are numerous. The process starts with one telephone call to our law firm. Our attorneys remain at your side throughout the entire application for naturalization process, identifying any issues that arise and moving forward with solutions.
