Naturalization and Legal Services

- A staff attorney to answer naturalization questions.
- Classes and tutoring to help applicants prepare for their citizenship interview and English and civics tests. Mock interviews to practice for the naturalization interview.
- Legal representation at the interview, as needed, to help address complicated issues, e.g. a criminal history or medical disability.
