Barten Lantz P.C. provides legal representation for all types of U.S. citizenship and naturalization cases. There are many significant benefits of U.S. citizenship including not being subject to deportation (removal), eligibility for jobs only available to U.S. citizens, college financial aid, disability benefits, Medicare and Medicaid, and the right to vote in U.S. elections. U.S. citizens may also sponsor fiancés and all of their immediate relatives. Our attorneys assist with filing applications to prove citizenship, obtaining U.S. passports for travel, and applications for permanent residents to naturalize. The decision whether to apply is an important one as loss of residency and removal can occur if residency has been abandoned or criminal arrests or other prohibited acts are determined. We will analyze your case and advise you whether or not you qualify for citizenship or naturalization and the best timing to apply.
Early Naturalization — We assist with early naturalization for military service members and spouses of missionaries, government employees and U.S. company employees assigned abroad.
Criminal Arrests, Addiction, Extended Travel, Other Prohibited Acts — We assist residents in showing rehabilitation to overcome criminal arrests, addiction, extended absences from the U.S., or other prohibited acts.
Avoid the English Exam — One of the requirements for naturalization is passing the English and history exam. We help residents apply for an exemption of the English or history exam.
Birth Abroad with U.S. Citizen Parent — We help with proving citizenship if you were born abroad and at least one of your parents is a U.S. citizen by birth or naturalization or for foreign national children adopted by U.S. citizens.
