Naturalization is the process of conferring U.S. nationality (or citizenship) upon a foreign born legal permanent resident.  There are many benefits to U.S. citizenship such as the ability to vote, obtain government-sponsored benefits, retain residency status, and avoid the risk of deportation for any reason.  In addition, U.S. citizens have preference when bringing foreign national family members to the U.S.

At FKP we assist applicants seeking naturalization by successfully proving their eligibility when filing an application.  In order to qualify for naturalization, we are responsible for ensuring that our clients meet the following requirements:

  • Be a legal permanent resident
  • Age 18 or older
  • Meet certain residency and physical presence requirements
  • Prove good moral character
  • Prove knowledge of the English language and U.S. government & history
