Get expert help seeking dual citizenship in the United States
Having citizenship in the United States as well as in another country can be very advantageous. There are three main scenarios where this is possible:
- A child born in the United States to parents naturalized in another country automatically becomes a citizen of the United States and in most cases, a citizen of the parents’ home country.
- A child born to an American couple in another country will automatically become an American citizen, and, in some cases, a citizen of the country where he or she was born.
- You can also achieve dual naturalization by marrying a foreign national. Most countries grant automatic citizenships to spouses who are citizens of the United States.
Whether you are a US citizen applying for citizenship in another country, or a foreign national applying for US citizenship, there will be various legal criteria mandated by the United States government. It is in your best interests to contact an experienced immigration attorney such as Alejo Lugo for help understanding these criteria before you attempt to apply for dual citizenship.
We Expertly Handle Dual Citizenship Cases
The first thing we check is to ensure the home country allows for a second citizenship in the United States. There is no reason to apply for dual citizenship if the country where you were born refuses to grant dual citizenship.
Next, we walk clients through an exercise that lists the advantages and disadvantages of obtaining a second citizenship. Some clients change their minds when presented with the disadvantages of obtaining a dual citizenship.
If you decide to apply for dual citizenship, our team of immigration law attorneys will help you complete Form N-400, which is the Application for Naturalization. We pay personal attention to your case by consistently updating you about the status of your application.
