What Is The Difference?

One member of our team, David F. Vedder, is board certified in immigration and nationality law. This unique distinction means he knows the intricacies of these complicated matters. Use this knowledge to your advantage when making important choices. We sit down with you in order to understand your concerns and discuss potential solutions. When it comes to citizenship, there are two ways to obtain it: naturalization and acquisition.

Naturalization is best for someone who already holds a green card. Other requirements include obtaining residency for a certain amount of time and being able to read and write in English. You also must attend an interview and take a civics test. Acquisition is for those whose parents are U.S. citizens, but they are not. This is most common in adoption cases, and it has to be done before the child is 18.
