Peri B. Edelman in an NYC citizenship lawyer that has successfully obtained naturalization and citizenship for numerous clients for more than two decades.
If you are an immigrant, becoming a U.S. citizen is one of the most important steps you can take to help your family. When you are a U.S. citizen, you are granted the right to vote, protection from deportation, the ability to sponsor foreign family members for citizenship, the opportunity to work for the U.S. government, unrestricted travel, and more.
Peri B. Edelman's citizenship lawyer services have helped men, women and children from all over the world obtain U.S. citizenship. She has worked with many immigrants based in New York City and the tristate area and fights for her clients until the end of the citizenship process.
The road to citizenship and naturalization can be long and complicated, but Ms. Edelman will walk you through each step and make sure you never miss a deadline or obligation. There is no case too difficult for her - she has even obtained naturalization for individuals who have been convicted of minor crimes and who had previously been denied naturalization.
The Citizenship and Naturalization Process
If you are not a legally recognized U.S. citizen, you have two ways of becoming one: demonstrating your birthright citizenship or completing the naturalization process.
Accordingly, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services reviews benefit requests for citizenship and naturalization to determine whether:
- Foreign-born children of U.S. citizens by birth or naturalization meet the eligibility requirements before recognizing their acquisition or derivation of U.S. citizenship.
- Persons applying for naturalization based on their time as lawful permanent residents meet the eligibility requirements to become U.S. citizens such as good moral character and length of stay in the United States.
- Persons applying for naturalization based on their marriage to a U.S. citizen meet the eligibility requirements for naturalization through the specific regulations for spouses of U.S. citizens.
- Persons working abroad for certain entities, to include the U.S. Government, meet the eligibility requirements for certain exceptions to the general naturalization requirements.
