Citizenship and Naturalization

Naturalization is a process through which immigrants become citizens of the United States. Generally, applicants, who are at least 18 years old, and who have been residing in the United States as permanent residents for the past 5 years (3 years if the applicant is currently married and living with a U.S. citizen) without leaving the United States for a trip of 6 months or longer satisfy the requirements for continued residence and physical presence. Applicants must also meet other requirements for naturalization including being a person of “good moral character” for the requisite 5 or 3 years, possessing elementary level of reading, writing and understudying of the English language and knowledge and understanding of the fundamentals of the history and government of the United States. While some of the naturalization cases are pretty straightforward, others require the assistance of an experience immigration attorney. Such cases involve conviction for different crimes committed by naturalization applicants who may make them deportable.

Honest, trustworthy and excellent professional
Paul Marinov has been my immigration and naturalization lawyer since 2008. He's helped me obtain my temporary and then permanent Green Card. With his assistance I became a Naturalized US Citizen back in 2013. Afterwards, he became my wife's immigration lawyer and she is currently a Permanent Resident of the United States. I've consulted with him about family law as well and I am very impressed with his professionalism and honesty. Unlike most lawyers I've heard of, he never tried to sell me on additional services that are not absolutely necessary. To me that means that he is not in business solely for the money. He is trying to do a great job while helping people with their legal problems.
