Law Firm Guides Clients through Naturalization Process
Unfortunately, many clients only consult an immigration lawyer when they have potential problems in their naturalization application such as failure to register for selective service or arrests that may affect fulfillment of good moral character requirement. The Law Firm of Charles Dawkins Jr. can clarify and attempt to resolve the problem for the applicant.
An Applicant for Naturalization must fulfill certain requirements before the applicant is able to apply for naturalization (N-400) as an American citizen. Generally, an applicant must fulfill the following criteria to apply for naturalization:
(1) Applicant must be lawfully admitted for Permanent Residence.
(2) Applicant must be at least 18 years old at time of filing the application.
(3) Applicant must have satisfied certain residency requirements.
(4) Applicant must have continuous residence in the United States.
(5) Applicant must have physical Presence in the United States.
Moreover, for naturalization (N400) purposes, good moral character must exist during the statutory period and continue from time of filing of the application through the administration of the oath of allegiance. Also, failure to comply with selective service registration requirement may be grounds for denying application for naturalization to citizenship based on lack of good moral character or other basis if the person knowingly and willfully failed to register for selective service.
