Naturalization allows a foreign citizen to become a U.S. citizen. For many who dream of coming to America to make a better life, naturalization is a dream come true and the chance to finally move forward and make the U.S. a permanent home. It is important to ensure that you do everything required by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in order to make that dream a reality.
A Maryland naturalization attorney at Miranda & Weisman can help you every step of the way during the naturalization process. Our bilingual staff is here to provide you with advice and information, complete paperwork, provide documentation, and prepare you for required testing and interviews so you can become a U.S. citizen. Our representation is affordable, and we are proud to work for you to launch your American dream.
To start the process of becoming a U.S. citizen, you must complete Form N-400, Application for Naturalization.
In February of 2014, USCIS released a revised Form N-400. The revisions are intended to make it easier to determine if you are eligible for citizenship. The regulations also make changes to comply with the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 as well as to comply with the Child Soldier Prevention Act of 2007.
With the changes and revisions, the new Form N-400 is now 11 pages longer than the previous form and totals 21 pages in length. You must ensure that you have completed the entire form properly and provided all documentation so that USCIS can move forward with determining if you can become a citizen. A Maryland naturalization attorney can complete this paperwork, in its entirety, on your behalf to ensure that you are on the right track to becoming naturalized.
Completing Form N-400 is just one small part of becoming a citizen. You also must meet eligibility requirements such as:
Your N-400 form, immigration interview and a naturalization test are all used to determine if you meet these eligibility criteria. A Maryland naturalization attorney can help you prepare for and complete all of the steps in the process of becoming a U.S. citizen.
