Denaturalization

Atlanta Immigration Lawyer

Georgia Immigration Attorney

There are two ways of becoming a US citizen – by birth or by naturalization. Naturalization allows an alien to legally become a US citizen. Likewise denaturalization is the process in which your US citizenship is revoked or cancelled. The US government has the power to cancel your US citizenship. The government can revoke or cancel your US citizen for many reasons. An experienced US immigration lawyer at Zeribe Law Offices can explain the different reasons. When you become a naturalizedUScitizen, you should take some time to understand the reasons that can make you loose yourUScitizenship.

The most common reason for revocation or cancellation of US citizenship is concealment of information at the time of naturalization. If you have provided incorrect information on your naturalization application or to the USCIS at any stage in your journey from an alien to a lawful permanent resident status to a naturalized US citizen, then the USCIS can revoke your US citizenship. It is therefore important that you use the services of an experienced US immigration lawyer at Zeribe Law Offices to help you with your journey from an alien to an naturalization.

If you have been charged with subversive activities against the United States and you refuse to testify before a Congress committee formed to investigate the charges against you, your US citizenship will be revoked if your refusal is made within 10 years from the date of your naturalization. Your US citizenship can also be revoked if you join a subversive organization within 5 years from the date of your naturalization. If you have obtained your US citizenship through military service, your citizenship can be revoked if you are dishonorably discharged before completing 5 years of military service.

Denaturalization requires judicial action. It requires the intervention of the courts. The government will file a suit against you in a federal district court having jurisdiction over the place of your residence in the US. The court will send you a notice informing you about the case against you. You will also receive a copy of the suit which will specify the reasons why the government is revoking your citizenship. When you receive such notice from the federal district court, you should immediately contact an experienced US immigration attorney. You are required to file a reply within 60 days. If you do not file reply, the court will hear the government’s side of the case in your absence and allow the revocation. In your reply, you can challenge the government’s decision and also raise defenses. You can submit evidence in support of your defense. After you file your defense, the court will schedule a hearing. An experiencedUSimmigration lawyer can represent you at such hearing and defend you. Attempting to defend such cases without an experienced US immigration lawyer at Zeribe Law Offices can prove disastrous. You will loose the case and also your citizenship.
