Citizenship Resources Available in Worcester
There are many requirements in order to be eligible for naturalization. Among those requirements, the applicant must be 18 years of age, be a lawful permanent resident, have continuous permanent residence in the United States for 5 years, among other requirements.
One aspect of the naturalization process that requires planning is the applicant’s knowledge of English, along with U.S. history and government. Preparation for this aspect of the process might require time, from learning language skills to gaining knowledge for more specific test questions. Below are multiple resources that are available either online or here in Worcester that will provide practical assistance in reaching your goal of becoming a U.S. Citizen. Of course, while you acquire this knowledge for the part of the process you can control, it is always best to contact an attorney regarding your eligibility for naturalization and regarding the application itself.
