An overview of the naturalization process

Those who are interested in becoming a U.S. citizen may think it is a long and involved process. They're definitely not wrong. There are many steps in the naturalization process that a Miami resident will need to complete.

First, a person needs to find out if they are eligible to become a U.S. citizen. If they believe they are eligible, they need to fill out a Form N-400, which is the application for naturalization. After the form is submitted, a person may need to have a biometrics screening. Once the application and biometrics screening are completed, the person will need to have an interview with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. USCIS will then render a decision for the naturalization application. A person can be granted naturalization, they can be denied or they can be continued if USCIS needs additional information. Once a person is granted naturalization, they are not a U.S. citizen until they take the Oath of Allegiance at a naturalization ceremony.

If a person is interested in going through the naturalization process, they may want to speak with a legal professional about immigration law. An attorney understands how complicated this process can be and can help their clients with their questions about eligibility and how best to approach the progression. Immigration attorneys understand how important obtaining citizenship is for their clients and will help them overcome obstacles they may encounter.

The naturalization process takes time and can be complicated. Understanding how the process works and what is required of a person is necessary in order to be granted citizenship.
