Why Become a U.S. Citizen?

The Rewards of U.S. Citizenship

Becoming a U.S. citizen offers numerous benefits, including protection from deportation, the ability to petition for family members, eligibility for federal jobs, and the right to vote. Additionally, U.S. citizens can travel more freely and access federal benefits not available to green card holders. These privileges make the naturalization process a worthwhile endeavor for many immigrants.

Eligibility for Military Service Members and Families

Special Provisions for Military Service

Non-U.S. citizens who have served in the U.S. military, as well as the widows and widowers of U.S. citizens who died while serving, may be eligible for expedited naturalization processes. The eligibility criteria are often less stringent, and the required timeframes are shorter. Our immigration lawyer can help you confirm your eligibility and guide you through the application process, ensuring you meet all necessary requirements and deadlines.

Understanding the specific provisions for military service members and their families can significantly streamline your path to citizenship. Our legal team is dedicated to providing the support and expertise needed to navigate these unique circumstances effectively.
