Naturalization is the process by which U.S. citizenship is granted to a foreign citizen or national. Immigrants can acquire or derive U.S. citizenship a number of ways once certain conditions have been met. Persons who satisfy the requirements of naturalization are eligible for adjustment of status. Naturalized citizens are granted all of the rights, privileges and responsibilities that citizenship entails.
The process of naturalization may vary depending on how you entered the United States and your current status. Our firm can assist you in understanding when you qualify for this adjustment and the logistics of filing for naturalization (N-400).
