Becoming a U.S. Citizen

There are many reasons why people may want to migrate to America. Employment, family, and education are among the most popular reasons. However, New Jersey Immigration Lawyers suggest that you should be expected to be strongly vetted as to your reason for wanting to become a U.S. citizen.

The duty of the U.S. Immigration Dept is to protect our country, its citizens, its reputation, and to guard against terrorism. So, be prepared to encounter intense questioning and to provide thorough proof of your intentions to become a U.S. citizen. Yes, it is tedious a challenge. You will go through a process of “citizenship worthiness” before your visa application is remotely considered.

First, a foreign applicant seeking to immigrate to the U.S. must first have an approved petition by and/or be sponsored by at least but not limited to:

– U.S. citizen
– Lawful permanent resident such as spouse living in the U.S.
– Legal immediate relative such as children

After their petition, you will need to wait on an approval from the U.S. Immigration Dept which will cover all aspects of all previous and reviewed activity. It will be your responsibility to keep track of all activity and contact the appropriate sources involved in your U.S. immigration efforts.

Next, if you have made it this far, the National Visa Center (NVC) will contact you with the next step. You may be required to submit any additional forms in order to continue. As your advocate, the New Jersey Immigration Lawyers require you to be prepared to provide any additional documentations that will support your request to become a U.S. citizen. Don’t be shady or place yourself in a compromising position… Just promptly submit the info requested.
