Legal Blog: Applying for U.S. citizenship with serious crimes

Applying for citizenship in the United States with serious crimes on your record can and should be a real concern that must be reviewed closely by your immigration attorney. I recently had a client from Malden MA come into my office hoping to apply for citizenship with a drug possession conviction on her record. She had previously tried filing for citizenship without an immigration lawyer, but due to the conviction, her case was denied. I re-filed the case with proper evidence to demonstrate the client’s “good moral character.” This time around, the immigration officer happily approved her case.

 Result: Naturalization/Citizenship granted.
