Immigration Lawyers in Philadelphia Assist You in Becoming a Citizen

Philadelphia Immigration Law Attorneys Help you Pass the Test

Becoming a citizen of the United States can be exciting but also nerve-wracking. You have to file the appropriate paperwork and pass a citizenship test before you can even be considered. A competent Philadelphia immigration lawyer can help you through the process.

When you become a citizen, new opportunities become available to you, including the right to live and work in the United States without fear of deportation, the right to vote and hold public office, eligibility for government benefits and the ability to work in a government job. You can also sponsor family members in foreign countries for immigration to the United States.

Can you Pass the Test?

Before you are granted citizenship, one of the requirements is passing a citizenship test given by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The test comprises 10 questions and you must get at least six of them right in order to pass. The exam tests your basic knowledge of U.S. history, our government, a U.S. citizen’s basic rights and how those rights came to be. The test is usually given in English, but some exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis.
