The U.S. immigration attorneys at Louis M. Piscopo assist clients throughout California who already possess a green card to become a citizen of the United States through naturalization. Naturalization describes the process someone with lawful permanent residency must undergo in order to become a U.S. citizen, including the initial filing of a form N-400 and support documentation with the Citizenship & Immigration Service (CIS, formerly INS).

I’m already a permanent resident – why should I become a citizen?

Being a lawful permanent resident allows you to live and work in the U.S. indefinitely. Citizenship through naturalization, however, offers several practical advantages over simply holding a green card.

Advantages of United States Citizenship:

  • The right to vote in local, state and national elections and a voice in the U.S. democratic process
  • Once a citizen, you cannot be removed or deported, including after an arrest or criminal charges.
  • Expedited processing of residency requests for extended family members, including spouse, children, in-laws and cousins
