Naturalization for Former Asylee

Mooradian's client, a long-time resident of the United States who had fled political persecution in South America, was recently sworn in as a citizen at USCIS Lawrence following a brief naturalization interview. The client had some questions about her immigration history, in particular because she had been in removal proceedings in her past. Mooradian was able to work with the client to accurately portray her immigration history, while demonstrating to the agency that the client was indeed eligible for naturalization.  Mooradian met with the client several times to advise the client about possible questions during the interview and to ensure that she understood the English language and Civics exam requirements.

The client was able to readily pass the interview stage.  In fact, she was sworn in as a United States Citizen the same day at the Lawrence Field Office. The client is able to achieve her goal of being able to safely return to her country of origin, with the protection of United States Citizenship, after fleeing persecution many years ago. In addition, she no longer has to renew her lawful permanent resident status or worry that, upon extended travel, she may have her permanent resident status revoked.
