the US for more than 6 months;

Our New Jersey Immigration Lawyer will discuss your immigration status
and review you history to be sure that you qualify before any application
is submitted to USCIS. Simple errors or inadvertent mistakes could have
serious consequences and result in denials or deportation.
Criminal Violations Affect Good Moral Character
Its important that you disclose all criminal arrests regardless of how
minor you may think they were. All arrests must be disclosed to USCIS,
even those expunged and sealed by a Court. Convictions of gambling, prostitution,
smuggling, and other felonies may cause individuals to be considered of
bad moral character and disqualify them from citizenship.
Written and Oral Examinations
Once an application is filed, the interview process will be scheduled.
There are two tests as part of the interview: a written examination and
an oral examination. During the oral examination, the interviewer will
ask the applicant questions about American history and civics. During
the written examination, the application will be tested on their ability
to read, speak, write, and understand English. Depending on your age and
the length of time you have resided in the U.S. as a lawful permanent
resident, you may be able to take the examinations in your native language.
In addition, there are exemptions from these tests for applicants who
are able show medical documentation of mental or physical disability.
