Citizenship and Naturalization

Citizenship and NaturalizationThe law office of Ngozi Emeka Nchekwube can help you with citizenship and naturalization. People who were born in the United States are automatically considered to be citizens. If you were born in another country, but want to become a citizen of the United States, you have two options. You may obtain U.S. citizenship by meeting the requirements for citizenship established by the Child Citizenship Act or you may go through a process called naturalization.

At our Merrillville, Indiana, immigration law firm, we help our clients become United States citizens through citizenship and naturalization processes. We can guide you through the legal system, demonstrating that you meet the requirements, completing the proper paperwork and helping to make sure that the process goes smoothly.

Citizenship: You may become a citizen after birth if you had a parent or parents who were citizens at the time of your birth and you meet certain other requirements.

Naturalization: The naturalization process is different for people in different situations but, generally, you must complete an application and attend an interview about your application and background, as well as take English and civics tests. We can talk with you about your situation and recommend the best course of action. Our goal is to guide you through the process so things proceed smoothly.
