Become A United States Citizen

Naturalization is the process of becoming a U.S. citizen by completing various requirements established by the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). In most cases, those requirements include a period of Lawful Permanent Residency.

At the Santa Fe Springs law office of Robert F. Jacobs & Associates, PLC, our lawyers can help you determine if you are eligible to become a U.S. citizen. If you are, we will help you complete your Form N-400 application for Naturalization. We will guide you through all stages of the process, including preparing you for the Naturalization test.

When applications for citizenship are denied, we do not give up and neither should you. Our attorneys are committed to pursuing these matters to the highest level.

Are You Already A U.S. Citizen And Don't Know It?

Frequently, we find that people seeking Naturalization are already U.S. citizens, but do not know or simply have not completed the proper documentation. We can assist with completion of Form N-600, application for Certificate of Citizenship. This option is available to biological and adopted children of United States citizens.

We also assist with Delayed Registration of Birth. This is an option for people who were born in the United States, but not in a hospital. We can assist these people in obtaining a birth certificate, even if they are now adults.
