Citizenship Attorneys in Rockville

Naturalization for Immigrants in the DC Metro Area & Across the U.S.

The naturalization process toward becoming a U.S. citizen, at one point simply required filing an N-400 form and attending an interview. Unfortunately, those days are long past, and the citizenship process has become fraught with danger for the immigrant.

In today’s immigration world, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) examiner not only reviews the naturalization application, but also reviews underlying immigrant or nonimmigrant applications. This process, if not well prepared, could devastate the immigrant’s chances of continuing to live in the U.S.

Work with our Rockville citizenship lawyers. Call (703) 552-5051 or contact us online to schedule an initial consultation. We can help tailor a case strategy to meet your unique circumstances.

The Benefits of Citizenship

The importance of obtaining United States citizenship cannot be underestimated. Citizens are protected from deportation, meaning their life in the U.S. is not haunted by the threat of removal proceedings and you can enjoy the security afforded to other American citizens.

In addition, citizenship affords other benefits, including:

  • Citizens can petition on behalf of numerous family members, offering a chance at reunification in the U.S.
  • A citizen can act as a qualifying relative for waiver purposes.
  • A citizen can vote and participate in the democratic process in the United States.
  • A citizen has the same rights as other Americans to live and work in the U.S.

Possible Areas of Concern for Potential Citizens

Clients typically face two areas of concern on their path to citizenship. Our lawyers at Yacub Law Offices will thoroughly review these potential issues before filing the citizenship application. The first area of concern is whether there is a discrepancy between the residency application and the naturalization application. Any discrepancies, which may seem minor, could result in the denial of the immigrant’s citizenship or revocation of their green card.

Today, USCIS takes the position that if a person does not list all children in the underlying visa petition, it could be fraud and thus grounds for denying and revoking the green card. This simple oversight can have a hugely negative impact on your case.

The second area of concern is the existence of any prior criminal record. Our Rockville citizenship attorneys will review your entire criminal record before filing an application. Our experience in these cases is well established, as Yacub Law Offices has litigated U.S. citizenship matters within the agency and in the United States District Court for decades.
