Legal Help To Become A U.S. Citizen
You obtained your green card and created a life for yourself in the United States. Now the time has come to make this your permanent home. But are there hidden obstacles on your path to American citizenship?
Nuñez Law can guide you through the process of becoming a naturalized U.S. citizen. As your attorney, I can help you with the paperwork, proactively address any barriers and prepare you for the citizenship interview.
Why Would You Need A Citizenship Lawyer?
You are not required to hire an attorney to apply for U.S. citizenship, but many immigrants do. It’s too important, especially if you had any problems in the past with your visas or green card. The N-400 application is 21 pages long and it will be closely scrutinized by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
I can help you gather the necessary documents and fill out the paperwork properly. My experience in immigration law and family-based immigration can help to identify any potential issues such as:
- Interruptions of continuous U.S. residency
- Past arrests or convictions (in the U.S. or your country of origin)
- Past immigration violations (overstayed visa, etc.)
- Conflicting information from past immigration proceedings
- Expired or expiring green card
- Unpaid taxes or child support
Preparing For The Naturalization Interview
Most immigrants do not find the citizenship test too difficult. I can provide resources if you are worried about the civics quiz or the reading and writing portion. The interview with the USCIS officer and the speaking test is what makes people nervous. I can prepare you for the questions the officer is likely to ask and the parts where you will need to respond in English. My goal is for you to feel confident and ready for your citizenship interview.
Empowering You To Achieve Your American Dream
Most immigrants experience a feeling of great pride — and great relief — once they achieve American citizenship. If you are ready to take this step, let me help.
