Helping You Achieve Your Goal Of Citizenship
Wichmer & Groneck, LLC, can help you obtain U.S. citizenship. Usually, you must meet the following requirements before you are eligible to apply:
- Lawful permanent residence for five years (three years for spouses of U.S. citizens)
- Continuous residence in the U.S. for that period of time
- Physical presence in the U.S. for at least half of that time
- Good moral character
Recent changes to the law have, in some cases, made obtaining or proving citizenship easier. However, the process of naturalization can often be a trap for the unprepared, resulting not in citizenship for the applicant but instead in removal or deportation. How? Old convictions, child support irregularities, voting in the U.S., jury service, misleading information on previous immigration applications, and even one’s travel history can cause the USCIS to deny a naturalization application and order the detention and removal of the applicant.
We Can Help You Make Informed Decisions
Make sure that the firm you hire analyzes whether applying for U.S. citizenship is the right choice for you before you file. Usually, it is. But blindly filing an application for naturalization without analyzing your immigration history is dangerous.
