How Can an Experienced Florida Attorney Help Me Gain Citizenship?

You’d love to become a U.S. citizen. The only problem is that you don’t know how to go about it. What forms do you need to fill out? What’s the test going to be like? Should I be worried?

By finding out the answers to these questions as well as hiring an experienced Florida attorney, you can be well on your way to gaining citizenship. Here’s some more information how an attorney can assist you during this time.

They Will Explain the Process to You

Becoming a citizen can be quite confusing, whether you already have a family member living in the United States or not. Your experienced Florida attorney can explain how the process works and what to expect. For instance, they’ll go over the Naturalization Eligibility Worksheet Instructions with you to see if you are eligible to become a citizen in the first place. Then, you won’t waste your time going through the process if you are not eligible. If you are eligible, then your attorney will help guide you through the next steps.

They Will Help You Fill Out Your Forms

You’re going to need to complete N-400, Application for Naturalization, which you can do online or in person. There may be other forms you’ll have to fill out depending on your situation. However, getting that application in is how you kick off the citizenship process.

They Will Advise You on Your Interview

When you’re applying for citizenship, you’re going to have to be interviewed. The USCIS representative will ask you questions about your application and who you are. Your attorney can help you prepare for this interview so you aren’t nervous going into it. As long as you’re honest, everything should go well.

They’ll Help You Study for Your Test

Along with the interview, you will have to take a civics and an English test. The civics test is an oral test, and the USCIS representative will ask you basic questions about the U.S. government, like what the Constitution does and what kind of economic system is in the United States. You’ll need to answer at least 6 out 10 questions right in order to pass. The English test consists of reading, speaking, and writing, but some people may be exempt from this test depending on their age and status.

They Can Help You Appeal a Citizenship Denial

Let’s say your citizenship application is denied. If this happens to you, you can hire an experienced Florida attorney to help you appeal it. Your attorney can help you appeal it within 30 days of your original denial and submit your N-336 form, which is a Request for a Hearing on a Decision in Naturalization Proceedings. They can figure out why your application was denied and advise you on what to do moving forward.

When looking for a Florida immigration attorney, find one who has helped many other clients successfully gain citizenship – and has the case results to back up their work. Then, you’ll know that you’re in good hands and will have the best chance possible of becoming a U.S. citizen once and for all.
