San Diego Citizenship Attorneys

Providing Legal Service for Citizenship & Naturalization Cases - (619) 900-6778

Being a legal permanent resident (LPR) of the U.S. is a privilege that people across the globe work tirelessly to achieve. However, if you are fortunate enough to be granted LPR (lawful permanent residence) status, you are probably curious about applying for U.S. citizenship through naturalization.

Becoming a citizen offers many benefits, including:

  • The right to vote
  • Strong and permanent protections from deportation
  • Access to jobs and social services not available to non-citizens
  • Overall peace of mind

At Jacobs & Schlesinger, our San Diego citizenship attorneys have decades of experience in the field. We can help guide you through the process of naturalization.

If you would like the help of an experienced lawyer, contact us today at (619) 900-6778.

How Does the Naturalization Process Work?

The process of naturalization is not a simple one. You may need to fill out lengthy forms, answer questions, go through extensive interview processes, and present requested documentation. Naturalization takes place when a foreign individual seeks citizenship by meeting specific requirements.

Some of those requirements include that you:

  • Have a knowledge of U.S. civics and history
  • Take an oath of allegiance to the U.S.
  • Have the ability to write, read, and speak English
  • Are a person of good moral character
  • Have not been convicted of certain criminal acts
  • Are at least 18 years old (Except active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces)
  • Have resided for more than three months in the place of application
  • Have demonstrated continuous residence for the required period of time
  • Have been a permanent resident of the U.S. for at least five years (or at least 3 years if your applying for naturalization based on your marriage to a U.S. citizen)

There are other specific requirements which may apply in certain cases, such as not having taken trips outside of the U.S. for more than six months in the past five years. Our team can assess your specific situation and make sure you qualify for naturalization.
