Naturalization and Citizenship
U.S. Naturalization and Citizenship Attorneys
If you are a legal permanent resident (green card holder) seeking to obtain citizenship, our Dallas U.S. citizenship attorneys can answer your questions and help you through the naturalization process.
Our attorneys assist permanent residents with applications to become naturalized U.S. citizens. Generally, a person may submit an application to become a US citizen if he or she:
- Has been a permanent resident of the United States for five years; or
- Married to a U.S. citizen for at least three years; or
- Is currently serving in the US military.
Additionally, an applicant must satisfy the following:
- Evidence good moral character;
- Establish knowledge of U.S. history and government;
- Demonstrate the ability to read and write basic English;
- Establish knowledge and attachment to the U.S. Constitution; and
- Meet physical presence requirements.
Naturalization and citizenship issues may arise from international adoption of children, deportation defense claims, prior criminal issues, expired visas and expatriate declarations.

U.S. Citizenship/Genealogy Research Assistance
U.S. Citizenship may be conveyed to children through the naturalization of a parent or even a grandparent. Our office can help you learn if you may be a citizen through researching your family history and creating a timeline of your family history. This timeline, along with supporting documentation, is critical in proving your claim to U.S. citizenship. Once the essential elements have been established, we can help prove your citizenship through an application for a U.S. passport or Certificate of Citizenship.
