Citizenship

Becoming a U.S. citizen is a dream for many people across the world. The United States has been titled the land of opportunity for the privileges and benefits that come along with taking part of this Nation. Many of the privileges derived from obtaining citizenship include the right to vote, travel, better job opportunities and overall a more sustainable lifestyle. 


There are a variety of pathways towards citizenship offered by the current immigration laws of the United States. However, to become a citizen, an applicant must obtain permanent legal status and maintain their green card for the required duration of either three years if married to a U.S. citizen or five years if not.

Majority of the Naturalized U.S. citizens obtain their permanent legal status through a family petition from their spouse or an immediate family member. Others, through a business or work related petition from an employer and a smaller number of individuals are self petitioners after taking part in a humanitarian program such as VAWA.

"I reached out to Passage Immigration for assistance with

my naturalization application. Mr. Widman and his team were

terrific throughout the entire process. They answered all my

questions and the process they have in place to collect the information needed for the application was simple and more importantly

well organized. I was also very impressed with their professionalism.

I was not pressured into procuring additional services

and Mr. Wideman was upfront about how the entire process

would go. I highly recommend this law firm"
