Did you know that a naturalization (citizenship) application can now be submitted online?

USCIS has made it possible for a citizenship application, including all supporting documents, to be submitted online. We like this relatively new option because it makes it possible for your citizenship application to be processed a bit more quickly, and monitored through the USCIS website.

It has become challenging for permanent residents to reenter the U.S. after foreign travel - many of our clients tell us that they have been interrogated for hours at the airport in “secondary inspection” and their phones taken and searched. Others are concerned about being (wrongfully) placed into deportation proceedings due to a minor criminal conviction in their past.
