AILA’s U.S. Citizenship and Naturalization Law Toolbox provides an in-depth analysis of the laws governing automatic acquisition of citizenship and the process for naturalization, with form samples, checklists, and instructions. It offers specific guidance and advice on all aspects of U.S. citizenship, everything from the nuts and bolts of filling out the N-400 to requirements for relinquishing U.S. citizenship and tax consequences.
It serves as a good, quick reference, providing advice on legal issues that may come up during a client's naturalization application process (e.g., moral character issues, maintaining LPR status to ensure eligibility to naturalize), and describing the steps (e.g., the N-400, the interview, the oath ceremony, etc.). Moreover, it will help you understand which of your clients do not need to naturalize because they became U.S. citizens at birth or afterwards, with discussion of how those clients obtain proof of U.S. citizenship.
This Guide covers:
- Naturalization requirements and the N-400 process
- Automatic citizenship citizenship at birth and after
- Special rules for military members
- Maintaining LPR status and good moral character
- Administrative and judicial review of USCIS denials
- Denaturalization and dual citizenship
- Tax implications
