Tampa Naturalization Attorneys

We Know the Path to Citizenship

The United States Constitution grants every person the right to become a naturalized citizen of this country. Whether you are a permanent resident, a lawful noncitizen, or a refugee, you may qualify for naturalization and become a United States citizen.

At Maney | Gordon | Zeller, P.A., our Tampa naturalization lawyers can help you navigate the complex naturalization process. With over 40 years of combined experience, we can help determine your citizenship eligibility and meet the requirements. We can also represent you before the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the federal courts, if necessary.

We are proud to serve the people of the greater Tampa Bay area, including:

  • Clearwater
  • St. Petersburg
  • Broward County
  • Manatee County
  • Palm Beach County
  • Hillsborough County

Call (352) 268-8875 or to schedule a consultation with our team. We offer our services in English, Spanish, Amharic, Dutch, German, Harari, Hindi, Korean, Pashto, Russian, Somali, Thai, and Urdu.

Who Can Become a Naturalized Citizen?

You must:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Have lived in the country for at least 5 years
  • Demonstrate an attachment to the United States
  • Be a lawful permanent resident of the United States
  • Demonstrate an ability to read, write, and speak basic English
  • Be willing to take an oath of loyalty to the country and its constitution
  • Prove that you have good moral character (this means you cannot have a criminal record or any other actions that would violate the law.)

What Is the Naturalization Oath of Allegiance?

The oath of allegiance is the promise you make to the United States when you take the oath of citizenship. The oath of allegiance states:

I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and conveyance all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.

You can read more about the citizenship process and the naturalization process at the USCIS website.
