The process of becoming a United States Citizen is called “Naturalization” and is often the ultimate goal of our clients’ migration planning. The benefits of U.S. citizenship include the right to vote and to travel with a U.S. passport, improved opportunities to sponsor relatives for permanent residence, and the confidence that you will always be able to call the United States your home.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services provides a number of useful free resources about the citizenship process, and you can access them here.
If you want further assistance and legal advice about the process, call our office for an appointment.
We are often asked by potential applicants for U.S. Citizenship whether they may retain their original citizenship through the naturalization process. We have written a brief introduction to Dual Nationality here.
