Attorney Mooradian participated in the Citizenship Clinic at Ascentria Care Alliance in Worcester over the weekend. The program, during which community members received assistance with their citizenship applications, provides essential services for those looking to become citizens.
Attorney Mooradian reviewed citizenship applications with multiple clients. In reviewing the applications, it is essential to make sure that all biographical information is correctly stated. In addition, any criminal violations, including tickets or citations received, should be disclosed. Transparency and honesty are essential to a citizenship application.
Those who have criminal history, a lengthy history of travel or residence changes, or those who have a complicated immigration history can benefit by working with an immigration attorney. A citizenship application will also only be approved following a determination of good moral character, so if any negative factors are present, an attorney can assist in mitigating the consequences of such factors.
