DMRS’ Citizenship Program provides full representation in the following types of cases:

  • Naturalization (N-400)
  • Application for Citizenship through Acquisition (Acquired Citizenship) (N-600)
  • Application for Citizenship through Derivation (Derived Citizenship) (N-600)
  • Applications to Replace/Renew Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) cards (I-90)

Individuals who are currently Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) may be eligible to apply for U.S. citizenship through the Naturalization process.  Citizenship may also be obtained through other methods including the transmission of citizenship from a U.S. citizen parents to their child.

During your consultation, our Accredited Representative will ask questions about you, your criminal history, your immigration history, and your trips outside of the U.S to determine your eligibility for citizenship or the renewal of your LPR card.  If you are eligible, our Accredited Representative will prepare and file your application.  With your continued cooperation, we will provide representation until a final decision is reached in your case.  It is important that all prior immigration history or criminal history be disclosed during the consultation; there are ways to remedy these situations if they are disclosed.  However, if you do not disclose this information, it is likely it will be discovered later in the process and may affect your application.

Consultations

Citizenship consultations are conducted on a walk-in basis only (NO appointments) on Mondays and Fridays.  Please arrive early as a limited number of spaces are available.  The consultation fee is $50 for those who do not qualify for Free Legal Services.  In order to properly assess your case and your eligibility for benefits, please bring the following documentation to your appointment:

  • Lawful Permanent Resident card (or a copy if you lost the original)
  • Social Security card
  • State-Issued Identification or Drivers License

** NOTE: If your original documents are torn or otherwise in poor condition, you may be asked to obtain new certified copies.
