Naturalization Legal Services

After obtaining permanent residence, individuals may elect to pursue U.S. citizenship through naturalization. U.S. residence and physical presence are required for varying periods of time depending upon how one obtained his or her greencard in order to qualify. Other criteria affect one’s eligibility for naturalization often making the process more complex than initially apparent.

Meticulous attention to detail, creative problem solving and a result-oriented focus are hallmarks of Shulman Rogers’ Immigration, Nationality & Consular Practice Group. We think the most effective way to deal with a problem is to prevent the problem before it occurs.
