Citizenship and Naturalization Lawyer in Charleston

Naturalization is the process of granting U.S. citizenship to the national of a foreign country. Nationalized status can only be achieved if the individual meets all the requirements in the Immigration and Nationality Act.

“Attorney Maghzi responds to my email in less than 2 hours and in each communication, she answers patiently all questions and concerns that I have about my case.”

- Saara M.

Eligibility Requirements

Amongst various other criteria, in order to be eligible for nationalization, an individual must:

  • Hold a permanent resident status in the U.S. for a minimum of five years
  • Be the spouse of a U.S. citizen and have held permanent resident status in the U.S. for a minimum of three years
  • Have qualified service in the U.S. or armed forces

Children of U.S. citizens who currently reside outside the U.S. can also seek naturalization if they meet the other necessary criteria. If the individual meets all the necessary criteria to apply for citizenship, the applicant must complete the proper paperwork, attend an interview, and pass an English and civics test. After this, the applicant must take an oath of allegiance before becoming a citizen. A naturalization lawyer like Ameneh Maghzi will prepare you for this process and inform you of the best ways to present your case when it comes time to interview and complete the other assessments.
