Personalized Legal Guidance for U.S. Citizenship and Naturalization Matters

Obtaining citizenship is often an important goal for people who have immigrated to the United States. Citizenship provides several benefits and opportunities, including the right to vote, access to government benefits and services, protection from deportation, and the ability to sponsor family members for immigration. However, navigating the complex process of becoming a U.S. citizen can be challenging.

At John W. Lawit, LLC, we understand that each person's path to citizenship is unique. Our team of experienced immigration attorneys is dedicated to helping clients in Frisco navigate the intricacies of immigration law as they pursue naturalization and achieve their goals of becoming U.S. citizens.

The Naturalization Process

Naturalization is a legal process by which foreign-born individuals can become U.S. citizens after meeting certain requirements set forth by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). These requirements include:

  • Age: Applicants must be at least 18 years old when they apply for naturalization.
  • Maintenance of permanent residence: Applicants must have been lawful permanent residents—also known as Green Card holders—for a certain period of time before applying for naturalization.
  • Continuous residence: Applicants must show that they have resided in the United States continuously for five years, or three years if married to a U.S. citizen.
  • Physical presence: Applicants must show that they have been physically present in the country for more than half of their required period of continuous residence.
  • Good moral character: USCIS requires applicants to demonstrate that they have positive morals and values during their entire period of residence prior to naturalization. This typically means that they have no convictions for certain types of crimes.
  • Language and civics test: Applicants must demonstrate English language proficiency and knowledge of U.S. history and government by passing an English language test and a civics test.

Meticulous attention to detail is necessary when applying for naturalization, as any errors or omissions can result in delays or even denials. Our experienced Frisco immigration lawyers have extensive knowledge of the naturalization process. We can ensure that all required documents are properly prepared, deadlines are met, and clients are fully prepared for their citizenship interviews and English and civics tests.

Complex Factors That May Affect Citizenship Applications

In certain cases, the process of becoming a U.S. citizen may involve additional complexities. For example, immigrants with criminal records or who have been accused of certain crimes may face challenges when applying for naturalization. Likewise, people who were born abroad to U.S. citizen parents may need assistance in proving their derivative citizenship status.

The immigration attorneys at John W. Lawit, LLC have successfully handled a wide variety of complex citizenship matters for our clients. We analyze cases meticulously, strategically plan to address concerns that may arise, and zealously advocate for our clients when working with immigration officials. We will carefully review your circumstances to identify potential pitfalls or areas that may require special attention.

Sponsorship for Family Members

Becoming a U.S. citizen gives a person the opportunity to sponsor family members for visas that will provide them with lawful permanent residence (Green Cards). This opens up opportunities for family reunification by allowing spouses, children, parents, and siblings to obtain green cards through family-based immigration petitions.

Our team of dedicated immigration attorneys can guide you through the sponsorship process. With our experience addressing documentation requirements, filing procedures, and priority dates for immediate relative or family preference visa categories, we can address any potential issues that may arise during the application process.

The Importance of Legal Representation

Immigration laws can be complicated. They are subject to change, and they involve numerous legal requirements that must be met during the naturalization process. Attempting to navigate these intricacies without proper guidance can lead to avoidable mistakes and delays in obtaining U.S. citizenship.

Our experienced Frisco immigration lawyers are well-versed in the ever-changing landscape of immigration law. Our team understands the complexities associated with citizenship and naturalization matters, and we stay abreast of any policy changes that may affect our clients' cases. We provide comprehensive legal advice tailored to each client's unique circumstances.
