Everything you need to become a naturalized U.S. citizen
The sooner a green card holder becomes a U.S. citizen, the sooner he or she gains a host of benefits: the right to vote and apply for certain federal jobs, faster immigration for family, protection against deportation or new anti-immigration legislation, and more.
But the application process itself can be long and confusing--and at worst, create a risk of deportation. With Becoming a U.S. Citizen, you can save months, or even years, and avoid complications.
Learn how to:
- make sure you are eligible for citizenship
- understand the risks and rewards of applying
- fill out application forms
- study for the citizenship exam
- interview successfully, and
- deal with any setbacks.
Becoming a U.S. Citizen also shows you how to ask for a reduced fee or take advantage of special exceptions if you have a disability, are in the military, or are the spouse of a U.S. citizen.
The 10th edition is updated with the latest laws, procedures, and government policies. It includes sample forms, handy checklists, and a study guide to the citizenship exam.
