Thousands gain citizenship on Independence Day

Many people feel a great deal of pride for the country they call home. For individuals who have come to California and other parts of the United States from different countries, they may want to show their pride and dedication by obtaining citizenship. Though no easy task, the end result can be rewarding.

It was reported that, on this recent Independence Day, over 14,000 people became U.S. citizens. This occasion undoubtedly signified a great deal of importance for these parties who are now considered citizens in the eyes of the law. In one state, over 100 people representing 48 different countries attended the ceremony, marking their transition to citizens. In all, 175 naturalization ceremonies took place in different parts of the country this Fourth of July.

While more than 14,000 people marked this momentous occasion this week, 163,000 individuals have obtained citizenship during the 2018 fiscal year. This number shows a 55 percent increase from this same point last year. Of course, there are still a substantial number of individuals attempting to work through the necessary legal proceedings to reach this point themselves.

The journey toward citizenship can be one filled with many emotions. Individuals may feel stress, anxiety, excitement and joy at various points. It may seem easy to get overwhelmed due to the many steps involved with the process, but fortunately, interested individuals can obtain help along the way from experienced California attorneys. These legal professionals can help ensure that parties have their necessary paperwork in order, properly prepare for interviews and know what actions they need to carry out to help their process go as smoothly as possible.
