Miami Citizenship Attorney

U.S. Citizenship

Seeking citizenship? We can help!

When you have decided to apply to become a citizen of the United States of America, it is in your best interests to seek the help of a Miami immigration attorney to guide you through the process of naturalization. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reports that in 2010, over 700,000 people filed petitions for naturalization, and of these nearly 57,000 were denied.

Having skilled legal counsel on your side can greatly improve your chances of success. At Pozo Goldstein, LLP, we bring more than 50 years of combined experience to every case we represent, and with a team composed of former immigration prosecutors and a former judge, we are prepared to help you resolve any barriers you may face in your pursuit of citizenship. Contact us and schedule a free, in-office consultation!

Qualifications for Citizenship

Before you can apply to become a citizen, you must prove that you have lived in this country with a green card for at least five years. This is reduced to three years if you are married to a U.S. citizen. It is also possible to qualify by providing certain types of service in the United States military, as well as through supplying proof that your parent is a citizen. You must also:

  • Pass test of your ability to read, write, and speak English
  • Demonstrate your knowledge of U.S. history and government
  • Show that you are person of good moral character

Citizenship Lawyer Serving Miami-Dade County

A large percentage of our clients use USCIS Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, though others may need Form N-600, which is used by individuals whose parents are already U.S. citizens. We will review your current situation and help you develop an individualized strategy for your case, and an attorney from our firm will stand by you throughout the entire process. We understand how important it may be to you to become a citizen, and will work diligently to help you achieve this goal.
