Common Reasons for Denial of Citizenship

  1. Applicant cannot speak/write English - Applicants are required to speak, understand and write in the English language. An exception exists where the applicant is at least 50 years old and has maintained permanent residency for at least 20 years, or is at least 55 years old and has maintained permanent residency for at least 15 years. Here, the applicant may have the examination performed in his or her native language. The applicant may also apply for a Waiver if he or she is unable to learn English due to a medical condition. WE SPECIALIZE IN HELPING OUR CLIENTS FIND SOLUTIONS TO OVERCOME THIS PROBLEM.
  2. Arrests

An applicant may be denied citizenship if he or she is on probation for any crime committed at the time of interview. An applicant may also be denied Citizenship if he or she committed a crime involving moral turpitude.
