Ohio Citizenship Attorney
Officially Becoming an American
Citizenship in the United States is something that many are automatically granted by birth, a privilege that many foreign nationals seek and an honor that many Americans have died for in war. Once you are granted legal United States citizenship - whether through the naturalization process or by birth - you will be allowed to legally reside within the United States, travel to and from the country, and retain the rights that are granted to all citizens under the Constitution. There are a couple of ways that you can obtain citizenship in the United States, including:
Birthright citizenship is granted to a person who is born either in the United States or to a parent (or parents) who is an American citizens while they were living outside of the U.S. Children born in U.S. territories including Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, or the Northern Mariana Islands can also receive U.S. citizenship by birthright.
A child can gain citizenship through their parents if their parents become naturalized or they are already United States citizens. Children can also become citizens through adoption by American parents or other special circumstances. An attorney can assist you through the adoption process or by helping to ensure that your children retain legal immigration or naturalization status.
