Naturalization Attorney in New York
What is naturalization?
Naturalization is the process of becoming a U.S. citizen utilized by a person who was not born a U.S. citizen or did not obtain citizenship immediately after birth. This process is extremely beneficial for those individuals who may have lived in the United States for nearly their whole lives and who wish to be afforded the same benefits, rights and obligations as other United States citizens. If you are a non-U.S. citizen living in the United States, our law firm strongly urges that you call a New York immigration attorney from our office right away.

The Naturalization Process in New York
In order for a person to become eligible for naturalization, he or she is required to meet certain requirements as set by federal law. These requirements include the following:
- The ability to speak, read and write English.
- To have knowledge and a fundamental understanding of government and history in the United States.
- To have an attachment to the values of the Constitution.
- To feel favorably about the United States.
- To be a physical presence in the country for a specific period.
- To have a good moral character.
If you feel that you meet these qualifications, don't hesitate to seek out our firm to obtain a consultation of your case. The bulk of this process is based on honesty - but your background will still be extensively checked by a federal agency. If you lie about a past criminal conviction - even one that has been expunged - it is likely that your application will be denied.
