Citizenship & Naturalization in Evanston

Competent & Experienced Evanston Immigration Attorney

It is a common misconception that U.S. Citizenship can only be granted by being born in the country or within U.S. territories. In fact, a person can obtain U.S. Citizenship by being born abroad to one or more parents who are U.S. Citizens or through the naturalization process for immigrants.

If you are an immigrant in the United States and want to go through the complex process to gain the benefits of U.S. Citizenship, our leading Evanston Immigration lawyer at Takhsh Law, P.C. can assist you. There are many steps involved with the naturalization process and it is important that you have a U.S. Citizenship attorney to guide you through it all. Any minor mistakes made along the way can lead to your application being denied or long delays. We have the knowledge and experience you need on your side.

How to Become a Naturalized U.S. Citizen

As an immigrant in the U.S., you do not have the same responsibilities or benefits as a U.S. Citizen, born or naturalized. Once you are ready to proceed with your application for naturalization, you need to be mindful of certain responsibilities in order to read the benefits of this privilege. In order to obtain U.S. Citizenship, you must have lived in the States as a lawful permanent resident for at least five years prior to applying. If you are the spouse of a U.S. Citizen who petitioned for you to be become a Green Card holder, you will have to have resided in the U.S. for three years. Of course, travels abroad can materially affect the outcome of your application, not to mention the Immigration consequences of a criminal past.

  • There are several steps involved in the naturalization process, including:
  • Application must be completed, along with the supporting documents, and fees paid
  • Your application will be reviewed and you will be asked to appear for an interview
  • You will be fingerprinted and asked to gather additional supporting documents
  • You will have to take an English and U.S. History exam – you may be afforded certain accommodations (based on your health/age/etc.)
  • You will need to take the oath of allegiance

To get through the naturalization process, you will need a knowledgeable lawyer on your side. Call us now at (312) 561-3735 to make an appointment.
