Want To Become A U.S. Citizen?

The process of becoming a United States citizen is called naturalization. This process can be challenging, and you have the right to enlist a dedicated lawyer to guide you through it.

At The Law Office of Cheyenne Whitfield, P.A., in Brandon, we provide immigration law services in the Tampa Bay area and the surrounding parts of Florida. When you choose us to help you become a U.S. citizen, you can count on hands-on representation through every part of the process. We will stand by your side on your quest for citizenship.

The Naturalization Process

If all other eligibility requirements are met, you can become a citizen if you have been a permanent resident of the United States for five years or more. Spouses of U.S. citizens can become citizens themselves after only three years of permanent residency. Children of U.S. citizens and military personnel do not have to follow these time frames.

The first step in the naturalization process is the completion of Form N-400, Application for Naturalization. We can help you complete the form and submit it, ensuring that no documentation is overlooked that could cause your application to be denied.

If your application is accepted, you will have to pass the naturalization test. This test has two parts: a civics test and an English test. The civics test will involve questions about United States' politics and history. The English test will require writing and speaking in English. There are exceptions to these tests in some situations. We will help you find resources to study for the test and prepare for success so you can become an American citizen.
