NY Naturalization & Citizenship Lawyers

Becoming a U.S. Citizen

Obtaining United States citizenship grants you further rights than you previously enjoyed, such as the right to vote and to come and go from the U.S. as you please. It also addresses the insecurity surrounding your immigrant status that exists even for permanent residents, which can have their residency revoked in certain circumstances. If you wish to pursue citizenship, talk to a New York City immigration lawyer from our firm. We can review your case and give you an idea of what may be involved in the process, depending on your circumstances.

We represent individuals throughout Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, Rockland County and Westchester County.

What are the requirements for naturalization?

The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) lays out the requirements for naturalization, which include:

  • A specific period of continuous residence in the United States
  • Meeting the requirements of physical presence within the U.S. over a certain time period
  • State residency requirements for filing purposes
  • The ability to speak, read and write English
  • A knowledge and understanding of United States government and history
  • Attachment to the principles of the Constitution
  • Being of good moral character
  • Favorable disposition toward the United States
