Demands for Naturalization and Citizenship
Naturalization is the procedure where United States citizenship is conferred on a foreign citizen or national after she or he satisfies the requirements developed by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). The general requirements for management naturalization include:
- A period of constant residence and physical presence in the United States.
- Residence in a particular state prior to filing.
- A capability to read, write and speak the English language.
- An understanding of United States history and government.
- Good moral character.
- Attachment to the principles stated in the United States Constitution.
- Good feelings toward the United States.
All naturalization applicants have to demonstrate good moral character and a positive disposition toward the United States. However, if you feel like you might have problems meeting these general requirements then you should consider meeting with a Phoenix immigration lawyer to discuss why. The various other naturalization requirements may be modified or waived for specific applicants, such as spouses of United States citizens and persons with mental or physical handicaps.
Even if you just have questions about the naturalization process, please feel free to contact a Phoenix immigration attorney in our office. Our attorneys are always happy to discuss situations and if we can help we would be more than happy to assist you.
