The path to citizenship can be very complicated and contain obstacles. Those seeking citizenship must meet and comply with requirements including:

  • A period of continuous residence and physical presence in the United States;
  • The ability to communicate in reading, writing and speaking English; and
  • Knowledge of United States history and government.

Furthermore, the applicant must have good moral character, an attachment to the principles of the Constitution, and a favorable disposition toward the United States.

If you are planning to seek citizenship and have questions about the process, contact the Law Offices of Stephen Santucci, PC, for assistance.

Our offices are located on Staten Island in New York and in Philadelphia.

The Statue of Liberty, Symbol of America

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door"
from "The New Colossus" by Emma Lazarus

In the early part of the 20th century, before air transportation was available, most immigrants to the United States came to America on ships from Europe. Their first vision of the United States was often the Statue of Liberty. Though the poem on its base is no longer applicable to many immigrants, the Statue of Liberty has become an enduring symbol of coming to America.
