Miami Citizenship Attorney
Are you 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.
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 pass a test of your ability to read, write and speak English, as well as an examination of your knowledge of U.S. history and government. One of the most important aspects of your application is demonstrating that you are a person of good moral character, which may be influenced by any convictions you have on your criminal record.
