Louisiana Citizenship Attorney
Let Our Firm Help You Become a United States Citizen
The main goal for many lawful permanent residents (LRPs)—also known as green card holders—is to become a United States citizen. There are many benefits to becoming a naturalized citizen, including traveling without worry and voting in U.S. elections. However, the naturalization process can be quite complex and any mistakes on your applications to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) can either set your back or ruin your chances of becoming a U.S. citizen. That is why having an experienced immigration attorney help you prepare your documents and file your applications can ensure you fulfill your dream.
At The Scott Law Firm, LLC, helping immigrants become American citizens is one of the most rewarding experiences for our legal team. We understand how complex U.S. immigration laws can be and the pitfalls of the legal process. Our Louisiana citizenship lawyers have the knowledge and resources to help you overcome these obstacles in order to become a U.S. citizen.

Eligibility for Naturalization
In order to apply for naturalization, you must meet the following requirements:
- You are at least 18 years of age (unless you were adopted by a U.S. citizen).
- Be an LPR for at least five years, be an LPR who has served in the U.S. military and lived in the U.S. for at least three years, be a spouse of a U.S. citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least three years, or have asylum and lived in the U.S. for at least four years.
- You must live in the state or USCIS district where you apply for at least three months.
- You must be physically present in the U.S. for at least 30 months prior to filing.
- You are able to read, write, and speak in English.
- Be knowledgeable of U.S. history and government.
- You are a person of good moral character.
Our Louisiana citizenship attorney can determine your eligibility to become an American citizen, help you prepare and submit the Application for Naturalization (Form N-400). Once Form N-400 is filed, you must complete biometrics (i.e. photograph and fingerprints for background checks). Next, your interview will be scheduled to confirm all the details in your application and take a civics exam. When you pass your interview, you will be scheduled for your Naturalization Ceremony, where you will take the oath of citizenship to become a U.S. citizen.
