U.S. Citizenship

Many foreign nationals living and working in the United states desire to make the U.S. their permanent home. One of the great benefits to being a U.S. citizen is the right to participate in U.S. democracy. Becoming a U.S. citizen is the only way to guarantee you will always call the U.S. home. Even with a green card, there is a risk of losing the right to reside in the U.S. if a foreign national spends too long a period of time outside the U.S. Other benefits to being a U.S. citizen include: the right to run for political office and employment opportunity in federal jobs. Citizens also receive priorities when it comes to family immigration. A citizen can sponsor a relative’s immigration without waiting a long time for a visa to become available.

Before citizenship can be granted, there are a number of fulfillments. For help understanding the process to become a successfully naturalized citizen, it is essential that you speak with one of the attorneys at the Law Offices of Karina Arzumanova, P.A. They help clients in Miami and throughout Florida determine qualifications for naturalization and attain citizenship.

You may qualify for naturalization if the following applies to you:
1. You have been a permanent resident at least 5 years.
2. You have been a permanent resident for 3 or more years and eligible to file as a spouse of a U.S. citizen.
3. You served in the U.S. armed forces.
4. If you are a U.S. citizen and your child was born outside the U.S., your child may qualify for naturalization.

These are not the only ways to qualify for naturalization, and the best way to determine your qualifications is to talk with one of the immigration attorneys at the Law Offices of Karina Arzumanova, P.A. They can answer any questions you may have and advise the best ways to achieve U.S. citizenship.
