Portland Citizenship & Naturalization Attorney
Assistance with Complex Citizenship Cases
Offices in Medford & the Portland Area
Once an individual becomes a U.S. citizen, they have nearly the exact same rights as a person who was born in the United States. There are significant benefits of becoming a citizen rather than remaining with a green card. Sometimes, an individual delays their decision to pursue citizenship or is hesitant.
This is especially true of individuals who are already a citizen of another nation and do not wish to give up their prior nationality. Many times, however, the person will not lose their prior nationality. You may have specific questions about these issues, so it is best to speak to an attorney.
Why Should You Get Your Citizenship As Soon As Possible?
Oftentimes, individuals face serious complications in their lives which could have been solved if they had obtained citizenship years ago. For example, some problems that can happen when you are not yet a citizen include being deported, being unable to return to the U.S. after travel, or having your green card taken away due to an extended absence from the U.S. Citizenship also opens up more options to sponsor a family member from overseas.
Therefore, it is typically the best advice to obtain citizenship as soon as possible. When you first meet with our attorney, he will review your situation and advise you of any risks or problems. After that, he will build the strongest possible case and prepare you for the interview or accompany you to the interview.
