Springfield, Missouri Naturalization Lawyer

There are a number of ways to qualify for and achieve United States citizenship. A knowledgeable and experienced immigration law attorney is a valuable source of guidance for citizens of other countries seeking U.S. citizenship. I am Mary Lou Martin, Springfield, Missouri, naturalization attorney. I welcome your inquiry about how I can help you with your citizenship application or qualification process.

If you qualify for U.S. citizenship, I want to help you pursue that goal with as little stress as possible. I want to help you avoid common pitfalls and obstacles that sometimes get in the way of an immigrant's objective of naturalization as a U.S. citizen. I became a U.S. immigration attorney because I enjoy working with people, I enjoy learning about other cultures and I get a great deal of satisfaction from helping my clients achieve their goal of U.S. citizenship.

There are a number of ways for immigrants to become U.S. citizens. I am prepared to guide you through the requirements of the path that is appropriate for your situation:

  • Were you born to a U.S. citizen (or citizens) abroad, but your parents never declared your status as a U.S. citizen?
  • Were you born of foreign parents who were living in the United States, and want advice on how to take advantage of your rights as a natural-born U.S. citizen? (For example, how can you obtain a Social Security card and/or U.S. passport while living abroad? Is there anything you should know or watch out for before coming to the U.S. to live temporarily or permanently? I have valuable information to share with you.)
  • Do you want to know how to retain citizenship in your home country (if this is an option) and pursue dual citizenship? (Some countries allow this; some don't.)
  • Were you adopted from abroad by U.S. citizen parents, but they never finished the process of obtaining U.S. naturalized citizenship for you?
  • Are you a legal permanent resident (LPR) of the U.S., and now wish to take the next step of becoming a citizen?

Caution: There is a lot of information about U.S. citizenship available on the Internet through government websites and nonlawyer advocates. However, my extensive experience in immigration law has shown me how often people make mistakes or misunderstand the path to U.S. citizenship. They run into obstacles and waste time and money. I would therefore caution you about working with a paralegal or volunteer rather than with a lawyer who can analyze your unique circumstances in depth.
