Deciding to become a U.S. Citizen can be one of the most important decisions in an individual’s life.
If you decide to apply to become a U.S. citizen, you will be showing your commitment to the United States and your loyalty to its Constitution receiving a Certificate of Naturalization (Form 2207) which is provided as proof of citizenship.
Once you have Citizenship of the United States (as defined by Wikipedia below), you will be able to enjoy all rights and full protection by the United States government, having the legal status as described below:
“Citizenship of the United States is a legal status that entails Americans with specific rights, duties, and benefits in the United States. It serves as a foundation of fundamental rights derived from and protected by the Constitution and laws of the United States, such as freedom of expression, due process, the rights to vote (however, not all citizens have the right to vote in all federal elections, for example, those living in Puerto Rico), live and work in the United States, and to receive federal assistance.
The implementation of citizenship requires attitudes including pledging allegiance to the United States and swearing an oath to support and defend the constitution thereof. Certain rights are so fundamental that they are guaranteed to all persons, not just citizens..”
You will be required to attend a Naturalization Interview where you will be asked many questions about the information on your application and your personal background, and you will be required to take an English and a Civics Exam unless you qualify for an exemption waiver.
But you have nothing to worry about, as the Fischer & Van Thiel, LLC Immigration Attorneys are here to help you every step of your way working within the guidelines and processes of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, commonly abbreviated as USCIS.
