The citizenship process can be lengthy and stressful

When a person emigrates from another country of origin to Florida or elsewhere in the United States, he or she may have certain goals in mind. Some want to live and work in the United States so they can send money home to their family members. Others come here to live because they are marrying U.S. citizens. Many immigrants have an ultimate goal in common: citizenship.

There is a lot of paperwork involved in the U.S. citizen application process. Eligibility requirements must also be met, such as having a green card before filing an application for citizenship. Those who are not yet age 18 are not able to seek naturalization on their own. 

The U.S. government requires anyone wishing to become a citizen to have good moral character. This means an applicant must provide appropriate proof of strong moral character. Additionally, applicants must have lived in this country for a certain number of consecutive years.

When a Florida immigrant applies for citizenship, he or she must demonstrate a basic understanding of the U.S. Constitution. Beyond this understanding, the applicant must confirm that he or she believes in the principles contained therein and be willing to swear loyalty to the United States. As each step of the citizenship process is complete, achieving the goal becomes more of a reality. Any number of legal obstacles can arise that delay or impede one's ability to become a naturalized citizen, which is why it pays to stay closely connected to an experienced immigration law attorney from start to finish.
