Individuals with disabilities and naturalization

For anyone seeking to become a U.S. citizen through naturalization, the naturalization process can be complex. However, what particular issues a naturalization case involves can vary. There are many things that could have impacts on what the process involves for a person. This includes whether or not they have a disability.

When an immigrant has a disability, there are various aspects of the standard naturalization process that could prove difficult or impossible for them. An important thing for such individuals to know is that they may qualify for some adjustments to the standard procedures when it comes to their case.

For example, some individuals with disabilities can qualify to be exempt from having to take and pass the English test and civics test. Also, individuals with disabilities can request accommodations in relation to the naturalization process.

As with other immigration issues, there are specific procedures and rules related to requesting disability-related exemptions or accommodations in connection to naturalization. When an immigrant is disabled, it can be important for them to understand what special options they might have related to the naturalization process and what can be done to pursue these options.

Skilled immigration lawyers understand that every naturalization case is different. They also understand how critical it can be for individuals who are seeking to become a U.S. citizen to have advice tailored to their case’s special aspects. They can help immigrants with having the right information when addressing the unique issues related to their efforts to gain U.S. citizenship.
