Citizenship and Naturalization

Citizenship & Naturalization

While obtaining United States citizenship is incredibly rewarding, the road to citizenship is long and difficult. This is why it is necessary to hire an experienced immigration law firm to guide you through the entire process. Our team at Pinilla Law has won citizenship time and time again for our clients, giving us the knowledge to overcome any roadblock that may arise in the citizenship and naturalization process.

What is Naturalization?

Naturalization is the legal process for a non-citizen in a country to become a citizen of that country. To apply for naturalization, one of the following must describe your situation:

You have a Green Card and have lived in the United States for five years.
You have asylum and have lived in the United States for four years.
You are the spouse of a U.S. citizen and have lived in the country at least three years.
You are a permanent resident, have served in the United States military, and have been in the country for three years.

For each of the above situations, there are additional requirements you have to meet, which our team at Pinilla Law can walk you through. The naturalization process also requires speaking, reading, writing, and U.S. government assessments and much more. Once you win citizenship, you will finally enjoy the full benefits of the United States.
