If you’re one of many Florida immigrants whose greatest desire is to become a full-fledged U.S. citizen, you’ve likely been studying and working hard to accomplish your goals. The citizenship process is complex and requires that you meet many eligibility requirements and qualifications before you can file an application and, hopefully, achieve citizenship. Once you do file an application to become a U.S. citizen, you must reside full time in the United States until your application has been fully processed.
Part of the citizenship process includes testing. You must show that you are competent in reading, writing, speaking and understanding English. This is often one of the greatest challenges for those working toward naturalization. You must also prove that you have a basic understanding of U.S. government and the main historical events that have taken place since the country was founded.
Any number of issues can arise to impede your path to citizenship. Perhaps, the legitimacy of your marriage has been called into question and U.S. immigration law officials have requested your presence at a Stokes interview. Maybe you have a conviction on your criminal record. It would also be problematic if your application papers have not been properly filled out or certain documents are missing.
