What We Do 

 

 

 

 


Applying for Citizenship

Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs) may apply to become citizens of the U.S. after five years (three years if married to a U.S. citizen for those three years).

If you want to become a citizen of the U.S. there are things you might need. It is a good idea to keep all of the following in a safe place:

  • Copies of all immigration applications/petitions (I-485, refugee/asylum forms) you have submitted with the supporting documents;
  • Tax returns;
  • Birth certificates of all children (with English translations);
  • Certificates of marriage and final divorce decrees, if any (with English translations);
  • All your passports - current and expired;
  • Record of all travel outside the U.S., the countries visited, the dates left and returned (passports aren’t always stamped or easy to read);
  • List of all groups (political, professional, religious, etc.) to which you have belonged – purpose, dates, location;
  • Addresses where you have lived - the dates you moved in and moved out;
  • Employment  and schools– the name and addresses of the companies where you have worked or the schools attended, the dates you started and finished, and occupation at each job;
  • Certificates of marriage and final divorce decrees, if any;
  • Record of all traffic tickets, police encounters, date, location, outcome, copies of any reports; and
  • Certified court documents if you had to appear in court.
