CITIZENSHIP

Philadelphia Citizenship and Naturalization Attorney

United States citizenship is acquired in three ways: 1) by birth in the United States; 2) by birth overseas to one or more U.S. citizen parents; and 3) by naturalization, which is the process by which a lawful permanent resident can apply for citizenship.

Naturalization

Applying for naturalization can be challenging for someone who is not familiar with all the specific requirements that must be met under U.S. immigration law.  Attorney Tejal Mehta thoroughly understands the requirements and the type of supporting evidence that a naturalization application must include to win approval.  The Law Office of Tejal Mehta is experienced in handling difficult cases, and has successfully helped many individuals obtain U.S. citizenship after a denial.  Prior to filing your case, attorney Mehta will closely analyze your case to identify whether something in your background could present a problem, such as a criminal charge, insufficient physical presence in the U.S., or failure to pay child support or taxes.  Attorney Tejal Mehta will then guide you with specific steps to address such problem areas.  Furthermore, she will communicate with you regularly throughout the naturalization process.

Becoming a United States citizen is a great privilege with many benefits.  The two most important aspects of being a U.S. citizen are the right to vote and the right to receive the full protection of the U.S. constitution.  In addition, U.S. citizens can sponsor family members for permanent legal residency and travel on a U.S. passport.

Citizenship Acquired by Birth to a U.S. Citizen

If you believe you may qualify for U.S. citizenship based on your birth overseas to a U.S. citizen, attorney Tejal Mehta will help you determine whether you meet the criteria to receive confirmation of your U.S. citizenship.  She will also advise regarding the necessary supporting documentation you must present to prove your claim to U.S. citizenship.

The Law Office of Tejal Mehta offers experienced and affordable immigration counsel to those seeking to become U.S. citizens.
