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

At one point, the naturalization process toward becoming a U.S. citizen simply required filing an N-400 form and attending an interview. But 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 reviews the naturalization application and underlying immigrant or nonimmigrant applications. If not well prepared, this process 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.

Who Is Eligible for Naturalization?

To become a U.S. citizen through naturalization, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Have had a green card for at least 3 years
  • Maintained a physical and continuous presence in the U.S.
  • Show good moral character
  • Show basic knowledge of U.S. history and government
  • Have proficiency of spoken and written English
  • You are willing to make an oath of loyalty to the U.S.

Our dedicated team at Yacub Law Offices can help you determine your eligibility and guide you through the application process, from the paperwork to the interview preparations. If any issues or obstacles arise, we are ready to assist and help resolve them promptly so your operation can resume smoothly.

Is Dual Citizenship Allowed in the US?

The US has no restrictions on holding citizenship in another country alongside American citizenship. As a citizen, you can live and work freely, without the threat of deportation, buy property, and influence elections by voting or running for office. With dual citizenship, you have those freedoms in two countries.

Benefits of U.S. 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. They 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 concern is whether there is a discrepancy between the residency and naturalization applications. Any differences, which may seem minor, could result in the denial of the immigrant’s citizenship or revocation of their green card.

Today, USCIS assumes that if a person does not list all children in the underlying visa petition, it could be a 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. Yacub Law Offices has litigated U.S. citizenship matters within the agency and in the United States District Court for decades.
