WHY WOULD I WANT TO BECOME A UNITED STATES CITIZEN?
There are many benefits to citizenship versus immigration or even permanent resident status. First, you are afforded the right to vote and run for office. It is easier for U.S. citizens to help their family members come to the country; and there are many government jobs and scholarships that the American citizen can take advantage of as well. Finally, there are many fiscal benefits associated with U.S. citizenship; most notably social security which is not afforded to those who lack citizenship.
DO I NEED AN IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY TO COMPLETE THE APPLICATION PROCESS?
It is advisable to seek the support of an experienced legal professional when pursuing citizenship. Although not necessarily designed to be so, the process can be complicated and may easily result in misunderstandings that could delay or prevent citizenship. Immigration attorneys are knowledgeable in all aspects of immigration application and will support you throughout the process – from beginning to end.
Finally, immigration is a volatile and dynamic subject in the United States currently – and alterations to current expectations for those applying for citizenship will be more manageable if you collaborate with an experienced immigration attorney in Houston.
