Naturalization Attorney in Houston, TX

Houston Immigration Lawyer Helps Immigrants Become Citizens

For many immigrants coming to the United States, citizenship in is the ultimate goal and final step in their long journey. Through years of working and living in the United States, through the ups and downs of establishing a permanent residency and obtaining a green card, perhaps the last thing to accomplish for individuals and families alike is naturalization. Even though you have probably jumped through hoops and cleared many roadblocks along the way, the path to attaining U.S. citizenship is still not a clear or easy one.

Consulting a Houston immigration lawyer can help the process proceed smoothly, and ultimately, help you get to your final goal so that you can enjoy the rights and responsibilities to which you are entitled. Attorney Jennifer A. Correro specifically devotes her practice to immigration law and to helping immigrants attain their dreams of citizenship. Trusting her with you immigration matters could be the best decision you have ever make and could put you directly on the path to realizing your dreams for you and your family.

Requirements for Naturalization

Immigrants cannot enjoy the same benefits and rights as citizens in the United States until they become naturalized U.S. citizens. Naturalization has several required steps that individuals must take to successfully complete the process and reach citizenship. Naturalization applicants are required to:

  • Obtain permanent residence through a green card
  • Live as a permanent resident in the U.S. for at least five years before pursuing citizenship
  • Live as a permanent resident in the U.S. for at least three years if married to a U.S. citizen
  • Complete and submit Form N-400, Application for Naturalization
  • Once form is approved, complete an immigration interview
  • Pass background check
  • Pass English and civics tests
  • Take the Oath of Allegiance

Through the entire naturalization process, it is wise to have the legal guidance, support, and knowledge of an immigration attorney who can help you along the way. There may be roadblocks, there may be difficulties, and the naturalization process may prove difficult and complex. Knowing that your Houston immigration lawyer from The Law Office of Jennifer A. Correro is by your side can provide peace of mind, prepare you for optimal performance in an interview, and ensure that you are prepared to pass the required tests.

Naturalization Applications Require the Help of an Experienced Lawyer

There are many forms and documents involved in the naturalization process, the most important of them being Form N-400, Application for Naturalization. Form N-400 must be completed correctly and filed with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for approval. Along with your form, you may have to provide documentation, including marriage licenses, green cards, birth certificates, tax returns, request for certification of military or naval service (if applicable), evidence of financial support, and more.

Failing to submit the proper forms or complete documentation incorrectly could ruin your chances of earning citizenship through naturalization. To avoid such a headache, it would be wise for you to seek the help of a Houston immigration attorney who can review all documents and paperwork requirements, approve their validity, and ensure that all required eligibility documents are met and included. By enlisting the help of Attorney Jennifer A. Correro, who knows the complexities of immigration laws inside and out, your naturalization process could progress with ease and peace of mind rather than confusion and anxiety.
