Citizenship & Naturalization

For many permanent lawful residents, becoming a citizen of the U.S. is the ultimate goal. Becoming a naturalized citizen of the U.S., with all of the rights and responsibilities, is part of the American dream.

Naturalization is the process a foreign-born individual goes through to become a U.S. citizen. This process requires an application for citizenship, a test on English and civics, and taking an oath of allegiance to the United States government.

At The Law Offices of Derek Lim, our Fremont naturalization lawyer will sit down with you and review your qualifications for citizenship. We will fill out and submit your citizen application to the proper authorities and help with any issues that arise. If you have a criminal conviction of any kind, we can investigate the circumstances of the crime and evaluate how we can pursue a waiver on your behalf. Contact our law firm to learn more.
