naturalization, Chicago naturalization attorneys, naturalization interview, US immigration law, citizenshipMany immigrants who have lived in the U.S. for years make the decision to become naturalized citizens. In order to naturalize, a person must go through an interview in addition to submitting an application and documentation. However, some applicants are not able to meet the criteria and accommodations must be sought. If you are disabled or otherwise unable to meet one of the requirements for the interview, there is a procedure that must be followed.

General Accommodations & Exceptions

While age or other certain conditions are not considered disabilities, per se, it is possible sometimes to seek accommodation for an elderly applicant or for someone who has another condition that may not rise to the level of medical disability.

naturalization, Chicago naturalization attorneys, lawful permanent resident, Certificate of Naturalization, U.S. immigration lawMany immigrants come to the United States and never decide to become citizens, instead preferring lawful permanent resident (LPR) status or any other nonimmigrant visa. However, many do decide to take the proverbial leap, but remain confused at times about what naturalization requires. Refreshing one’s memory can be helpful.

Requirements to File

Before one begins the process, it is a good idea to ensure that he or she is even eligible to do so. A person is generally eligible to naturalize if he or she is over the age of 18, has good moral character (no convictions for aggravated felonies), and has been a permanent resident for at least 5 years, or 3 if he or she is married to a U.S. citizen.

Chicago naturalization attorneys, naturalization, Certificate of Naturalization, undocumented immigrants, citizenship applicationsDuring 2017, many different experts saw fit to comment on an unusual trend— documented immigrants, such as green card holders, were becoming U.S. citizens at much higher rates than normal. This is a noteworthy trend for many different reasons—for many immigrants, full citizenship is simply not necessary for the aims they wish to carry out within the United States. For example, one does not have to be a citizen to work in the U.S., nor to study.

Another reason to comment on the citizenship trend is that obtaining full citizenship is actually difficult for many and takes quite a long time, contrary to popular perception and misinformation propagated by those not in the know.

immigration law, naturalization, Chicago naturalization attorneys, immigration services, green card holderDespite the significant movement in the field of immigration law since the new administration has taken office, there are some factors that remain the same. One of those is the requirements to become a U.S. citizen—the same criteria exists as it has always been, at least as of this writing. If you are intending to apply for naturalization, it may be a good idea to do so in the near future, though refreshing yourself on what is required is recommended first.

Presence and Character Requirements

United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) lists specific criteria that a person must meet in order to be considered for naturalization. Most of the time, that includes having been a lawful permanent resident, commonly called a green card holder, for a period of time (usually three or five years, depending on the circumstances), and being physically present in the country for at least 30 months out of that five-year span. Military service members may be able to apply for naturalization in a shorter period of time, depending on the nature and quality of their service, but that is the exception, rather than the rule.

Chicago naturalization attorneys, citizenship, military service, naturalization,  military recruitsGiven the current state of military technology, fewer people are signing up to join the service than was once perhaps the case. This, along with a general, growing distaste for constant conflict, has led the United States military to consider other options. If you fit certain characteristics, you may be eligible to claim U.S. citizenship after your military service has been completed; still, this is not the case for every enlisted person. Nonetheless, it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the program.

Origins of the Program

Many, many people have joined the U.S. military in order to seek citizenship, but only since 2002 has the process been expedited specifically for military personnel. In the days following the 9/11 attacks, President George W. Bush authorized a quicker citizenship processing time for military recruits via executive order, knowing that the military would need to grow in size rapidly as it was pledged to attack terrorist cells around the globe. Recruits with potential to become translators or cultural experts were prioritized; however, anyone who met the requirements was permitted to go through the process. In 2009 it was expanded, with recruits getting the opportunity to naturalize at the end of basic training.
