Florida Immigration Attorney Counsels on Citizenship

Experienced lawyer based in the Daytona Beach area helps clients with the naturalization process

The status of citizen of the United States is coveted throughout the world. The right to live freely here and help relatives to immigrate here as well is a cherished opportunity sought by many. At Jacqueline M. Sale Esq., as an experienced immigration attorney, I understand how fervently my clients long to live the American dream. I help lawful U.S. residents in the Daytona Beach area and throughout Florida complete the requirements to become full citizens of the United States.

Florida attorney helps establish birthright citizenship

The U.S. Constitution sets the requirement that any person serving as president or vice-president of the United States must be a “natural-born citizen," but does not define the term. The 14th Amendment declares, “All persons born…in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens…." But is “born in the United States" the complete definition of “natural-born"? Not according to Title 8 U.S. Code § 1401, which lists several circumstances under which children born outside the United States are nevertheless considered citizens of the United States at birth:

  • Anyone born outside the United States, both of whose parents are U.S. citizens, as long as one parent has lived in the United States
  • Anyone born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the United States for at least one year and the other parent is a U.S. national
  • Anyone born in a U.S. possession, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the United States for at least one year
  • Anyone found in the United States under the age of five, whose parentage cannot be determined, as long as proof of non-citizenship is not provided by age 21
  • Anyone born outside the United States, if one parent is an alien and as long as the other parent is a U.S. citizen who lived in the United States for at least five years (with military and diplomatic service included in this time)
  • A person born before 5/24/1934 of an alien father and a U.S. citizen mother who has lived in the United States

Each of these conditions creates an opportunity for a person to establish birthright citizenship, provided the circumstances can be precisely documented. Our attorneys can assist in gathering the crucial facts to make a compelling case for birthright citizenship.

Skilled immigration advocate assists with naturalization

A lawfully admitted permanent U.S. resident can apply for citizenship through the naturalization process starting at age 18, provided other conditions are met. I can assist you in preparing your application and advancing step by step through the naturalization process.

In order to be considered for citizenship, a permanent resident must demonstrate “good moral character." While this does not require a showing of extraordinary virtue, it is a heavily weighted factor, and even a minor brush with the law can be a major impediment. I understand how the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services interprets “good moral character," and can present your story in the best possible light. I am also experienced at having criminal records expunged and can often accomplish that before the application process begins. With Jacqueline M. Sale Esq. supporting your citizenship application, you know you have a reliable legal professional behind you.
