Becoming an American citizen involves more than just completing and filing an Application for Naturalization, even in the simplest of cases. The naturalization process can be confusing and often involves numerous challenges. Efforts to obtain U.S. citizenship may present problems and issues such as:
- Time spent outside the U.S. as a permanent resident
- Arrests or criminal records
- Child support
- Ability to read, write and speak English fluently
- Failure to register with the Selective Service System
- Failure to pay income taxes to the Internal Revenue Service
- Convictions for Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
- Lack of knowledge of U.S. government and history
Even if you think you are not eligible for citizenship, we urge you to contact us so we can assess your situation. Sometimes a criminal conviction does not automatically bar a citizenship claim.
In other cases, you may be eligible for a “Claim to U.S. Citizenship” and not even be aware you qualify. Sometimes, individuals may not be aware that they are U.S. citizens or have a claim to citizenship based on their parents’ or grandparents’ U.S. citizenship or U.S. naturalization. We can conduct in-depth analysis and research to determine if you have a claim to U.S. citizenship, which is often overlooked and missed until clients have hired us to evaluate.
One example of this type of scenario can involve if you were born overseas to a parent who is a U.S. citizen. We know how to ask clear questions that can uncover important and life-changing answers.
