Four out of five individuals who apply to the USCIS without an attorney's assistance will have their applications denied. The naturalization process is no exception.
Naturalization is when a permanent resident acquires U.S. citizenship. Generally the requirements are as follows:
- Five years continuous residence (or three years if married to a US citizen), of which at least half the time must be spent physically in the United States;
- Residence of 90 days in a particular USCIS District prior to filing;
- Ability to read, write, and speak English (yet certain exceptions apply to elderly, disabled, etc.);
- Knowledge and understanding of U.S. history and government (yet certain exceptions apply to elderly, disabled, etc.);
- Good moral character; and
- Support for the principles of the U.S. Constitution.
If you are interested in applying for naturalization, please contact LMG Law today.
The Immigration and Nationality Act enables a child born outside the U.S. to claim U.S. citizenship through his/her parent’s birth or naturalization. The Child Citizenship Act of 2000 has made the process easier for both natural-born and adopted children of U.S. citizens.

I am very glad I met Lahaina. She is a great lawyer, very professional, careful and knowledgeable. She is also very human, understanding and she just wants the best for you. I had a great experience with her and I would always go back to her if I ever needed an immigration lawyer again. Thank you for all your help. - Selene, Los Angeles

Still Have Questions about LMG Law?
Frequently asked questions...
What if I don't live in the United States?
LMG Law understands that immigration clients may be based abroad or traveling. Thus, we offer free consultations over Skype and phone.
What if I am presently in the United States without documentation?
Contrary to popular belief, being undocumented in the United States does not always lead to a 3 or 10 year ban. We are happy to do an intake with you to explore your options . You may fall into the exceptions, such as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), or more.
Do I have to come to the Hollywood or Riverside office to work with LMG Law?
LMG Law offers remote intakes and meetings. If you cannot make it to our Hollywood office, we will be happy to work with your schedule and travel restrictions.
What does the free consultation include?
Your free consultation includes a conversation with an attorney. This conversation includes a full case evaluation and a free quote.
How much does it cost?
LMG Law prioritizes competitive pricing. We will do our best to out price other law firms. Unfortunately, immigration law firms cannot give flat prices for services as each case is contingent on many factors (such as criminal history, nationality, employment, etc.).
Does LMG Law attend interviews with me?
LMG Law will attend your interviews or go to USCIS with you if you desire.
