What CAN a Lawyer Do in a Naturalization (Citizenship) Interview?
When it comes to the interview process for becoming a citizen, it can be very intimidating. It’s one series of questions that decides whether or not you get to stay in the country that you now call home. For some people, they will hire a citizenship lawyer for the paperwork it takes to become a citizen but will forgo an attorney for the interview. Although you do end up saving a little bit of money, there are many things an immigration lawyer can do to help you prepare for the test.
First of all, the questions are not the same every year, so you can’t ask someone who took the test last year for answers. Another thing is that through immigration lawyer consultations you can practice and get a better understanding of the types of questions that are going to be asked. Lastly, although there is a sheet of questions provided for the citizenship test, there are only a few questions the immigration agent will actually ask you. A lawyer can do their best to prepare you for the toughest questions that might not have an official answer.
