Preparing You To Apply For Citizenship

The process of applying for citizenship in the United States is complex and demanding. In addition to submitting an application, you will be tested on your knowledge of the English language and U.S. civics, and your moral character will be questioned.

At The Pilkington Law Firm, PLLC, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, we can prepare you for every aspect of naturalization by keeping you constantly informed of the status of your case. We work hard to give you the best chance possible at becoming a U.S. citizen.

Understanding Eligibility

Not everyone is eligible to seek citizenship in the U.S. According to current U.S. immigration law, you must meet the following criteria in order to apply:

  • Have permanent resident status
  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Have lived in the country for five years or more
  • Have good moral character

Lawmakers continue to work toward new immigration laws, but it is unclear at this time what exactly that will mean. Our lawyers stay abreast of changes to immigration laws and will notify you if a change affects your case.

Preparing For The Interview And Test

In order to be approved for citizenship, you must undergo an interview and pass tests proving your knowledge of American civics and your proficiency in the English language. For many, this is the most difficult part of the citizenship application. As your law firm, we will take the time to ensure you are prepared and confident in yourself and your abilities.
