Naturalization And Derivative Citizenship

Naturalization is the process by which U.S. citizenship is granted if you are a foreign citizen or national after you fulfill the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). You may qualify for naturalization if you have been a legal permanent resident of the United States for at least five years, if you have been a legal permanent resident of the United States for at least three years and are married to a United States citizen, or if you have qualifying service in the United States military. You also must meet all other eligibility requirements. The attorneys of Muchnicki & Bittner, LLP, have years of experience helping individuals become citizens of the United States of America.

Navigating Complex Derivative Citizenship Laws

In some instances, you may already be a United States citizen if you were born abroad, or if one or both of your parents are or were United States citizens. The United States’ derivative citizenship laws are very complex and vary depending upon what law was in effect at the time you were born. The length of your parent’s residency in the United States may also be relevant. At Muchnicki & Bittner, LLP, we can accurately navigate these complex laws to help you obtain a certificate of citizenship, if you derived United States citizenship by nature of your birth.
