We have assisted hundreds of clients to obtain Naturalization. You may consider doing it on your own but, in some instances, it makes sense to hire a lawyer if you wish to make the process easier for yourself or if you have some issues surrounding an arrest or left the United States longer than you should have, i.e., over 6 months. It is also the case that simple mistakes on the forms can cause delays.
The main issues to be aware of in relation to applying for naturalization are: (1) arrests for any criminal matter; (2) if you left the United States for longer than 6 months; (3) paying federal income tax; (4) paying child-support; and (5) registering for selective service.
