Obtaining American citizenship is a big dream for immigrants who come to the United States in search of better opportunities because with this they can obtain many benefits.

For this reason, at Quiroga Law Office, PLLC, we will tell you what you need to know about this process.

Do I need a valid passport from my country of origin to apply for American citizenship?

If you want to apply for your citizenship and you do not have the passport of your native country, or you have it, but it has expired, you have nothing to worry about, because this is not a required document to request citizenship.

What you will need is your current Permanent Resident Card or Green Card, as well as other documents requested by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

These documents may vary according to the characteristics of each particular case, so it is important that you inform yourself and organize them in advance, since not sending all the required documentation may result in your application being denied.

Remember that in addition to sending the documents, you will also need to present your citizenship exam and your English test.

We recommend that before submitting your application for naturalization or starting any other process, you consult with an immigration attorney to study the details of your case.
