What Should I Know About Naturalization?
You likely already know a thing or two about naturalization. However, we’ve outlined some of the basics below, so you can fully understand your options.
You can become a naturalized U.S. citizen if you meet the following criteria:
- You are currently at least 18 years old.
- You have been a lawful permanent resident of the U.S. for the last three or five years (depending on your situation).
- You have continuous residence in the U.S.
- You can read, write, and speak basic English.
- You have knowledge of United States history and government.
- You’re willing to take an Oath of Allegiance.
There are other criteria you must meet. An immigration attorney from our firm can check whether you meet all of the criteria, and then we can help with your application.

What Will a Phoenix Naturalization Immigration Attorney Do for Me?
Applying for naturalization can be complicated. The process can involve filling out certain forms, attending an interview, and more. You may find the process hard without an attorney by your side.
Our Phoenix attorneys will do everything possible to help you gain citizenship. We can:
Help You Complete Form N-300 and/or Form N-400
To apply for citizenship, you may have to complete and submit Form N-300 (Application to File Declaration of Intention). Your attorney will determine whether this form is necessary, and if it is, they will help you complete and submit it promptly.
The actual application form for naturalization is Form N-400 (Application for Naturalization). Your attorney will help you complete this form and submit it promptly. There’s a lot of confusing jargon in this document, but our team can explain it to you.
Attend Your USCIS Citizenship Interview With You
An interview may be the final part of your naturalization process. If the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) interviewer approves you, you’ll become a naturalized U.S. citizen. However, this isn’t as straightforward as it seems.
Before the interview, your attorney will help you prepare by asking you some practice questions. They can also explain any tests you may take. These tests may measure your knowledge of U.S. history, English, and other related matters.
During the interview, the interviewer will ask about you and your application. Your attorney will help you answer the interviewer’s questions and argue your naturalization case. At the end of the interview, the interviewer will make their decision about your naturalized U.S. citizenship.
Assist You in Other Ways
Your attorney could also assist you with:
- An appeal of a naturalization denial
- A family petition
- A Military Parole in Place application
- A Motion to Reconsider or Reopen
