Citizenship

The opportunity and process for becoming a United States citizen are straightforward. For most permanent residents, if you have held and maintained resident status for five years, you may apply to naturalize.
Suppose you gained your resident status through marriage to a U.S. citizen. In that case, you are eligible after three years of resident status so long as you remain married to the U.S. citizen through whom you obtained your citizenship.

Who Is This For?

As we mentioned before, if you have held and maintained resident status for five years, you may apply to naturalize for most permanent residents.

If eligible, you and your St. Louis citizenship lawyer would follow the basic citizenship application process described below:

  • Prepare and submit a naturalization application and submit it to Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS)
  • Appear for an interview with an immigration officer during which you will review your case for citizenship, take a U.S. language and civics test, and be asked to swear allegiance to the U.S.
  • Attend a ceremony during which you will again swear allegiance to the U.S. and be formally naturalized.

The only way that we have found to get USCIS moving on your case is to sue the agency in federal district court and ask a judge to compel USCIS to take action on your case.
