Green Card to Citizenship

At the Law Office of Adam Sanders we advise permanent residents interested in United States citizenship about the naturalization process and help applicants for citizenship overcome any obstacles that might come up along the way. To learn how an experienced immigration attorney can help you achieve the goal of citizenship, contact us in New York City for an initial consultation.

Our Goal Is to Help You Find the Smoothest Path to U.S. citizenship

Because we practice exclusively in immigration and naturalization law, our knowledge and experience can help you take advantage of opportunities for shortening the path to citizenship while resolving problems related to your application. Our services in any given situation might include:

  • Examining whether any criminal convictions will prevent you from citizenship or put you at risk of removal proceedings when applying for citizenship
  • Getting a waiver of the citizenship test or language requirements for people over 55 or who have lived in the U.S. for more than 20 years
  • Making sure that divorce or employment problems won’t threaten the interests of permanent residents whose original visas were based on marriage or work
  • Considering the effect of extended travel abroad during the U.S. residence period
  • Resolving tax problems prior to the application for citizenship
  • Identifying grounds for claiming derivative citizenship or acquired citizenship based on family circumstances

We review all citizenship applications carefully with our clients, and we sometimes discover that immigrants are already U.S. citizens. In most cases, however, our job is to make sure that we can document your eligibility for citizenship while addressing any problems that might interfere with the naturalization process.
