This training will include a review of the general requirements for naturalization including continuous residence, physical presence, good moral character, the English and Civics requirements, and the red flag issues that can cause an applicant to be denied or even deported. This will include in-depth discussions on the various ways an absence from the United States can affect one’s naturalization application and how to evaluate good moral character. Additionally, we will review the N-400, fee waivers and red flag issues that arise when working with a client.

Lunch will be provided.
