Are you a lawful permanent resident (green card holder) who has been considering naturalization?
You Need an Experienced Attorney By Your Side.
Be the change you want to see. Benefits of naturalization include the right to vote, the right to run for public office, the ability to travel abroad freely, avoiding the threat of deportation, and more. You can also sponsor your family for green cards. Naturalization in the United States is an exciting journey with many steps and legal obstacles. You must fulfill all of the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act. At LaGrone Law, it is our pleasure to assist you through this process. We believe America is defined as much by our differences as our similarities.
The naturalization process is easier without a conviction or prior arrest, but that does not mean that you cannot become a US citizen with a conviction. It’s important to note that applicants must disclose all arrests. If you are considering naturalization with a conviction, we encourage you to contact us to review your case.
