There are many routes to citizenship here in the United States, and the three central ones are: being born in this country, obtaining it through parents or grandparents, and/or meeting the naturalization qualifications. Many people are unsure of how the naturalization and citizenship process works, and don’t know where to begin with paperwork or understanding their eligibility. Here at the Law Office of John K. Turner, we are proud to provide legal counsel and representation to those seeking citizenship, and we can help you navigate these proceedings with ease. There are many wonderful benefits to being a U.S. citizen, and we’re here to help you take advantage of this opportunity.
In determining your naturalization eligibility, many factors are considered, including your place of residence, your age, your physical presence in the country, and your overall moral character. You must also have a good knowledge of the English language and U.S. government. Good candidates for naturalization generally have an established residence of longer than five years, have a clean criminal record, and are current on their taxes. There are a few exceptions to these requirements, for those with disabilities or over the age of 50, but you should consult a Florida immigration attorney to help determine your status. Our firm can assist you in seeking citizenship, oversee your forms, and offer skilled court representation when called for.
