The Law Offices of Jack Herzig provides assistance to persons applying for U.S. citizenship, or seeking to establish U.S. citizenship based upon the U.S. citizenship and residence of their ancestors. United States Citizenship may be acquired by one of the following ways, (1) by birth, this includes birth in the United States or by birth overseas to one or more United States citizen parents, (2) by naturalization, this requires filing an application and satisfying statutory eligibility requirements, or (3) by derivation, which allows for children who are born outside the United States to automatically derive U.S. citizenship if a parent is a U.S. citizen by birth or naturalizes before the child reaches the age of 18, and certain other conditions are met.
To qualify for naturalization, an applicant must (1) be a Lawful Permanent Resident, (2) be at least 18 years old at the time of filing the application (unless exempted from the age requirements), (3) meet the continuous residence and physical presence requirements, (4) must be a person of good moral character, and (4) must comply with the Selective Service Registration. Additionally, an applicant must show attachment to the principles of the U.S. Constitution, must take a full oath of allegiance to the United States and pass a literacy, U.S. history and government test. Furthermore, certain special classes of immigrants may be eligible for accelerated naturalization.
If you have any questions regarding filing a naturalization application, documentation requirements and eligibility, please contact the Law Offices of Jack Herzig so that we may serve you with your legal needs.
