The Tulsa law firm of Fry & Elder is experienced and well versed in all Oklahoma naturalization and citizenship, along with all other immigration laws. Oklahoma naturalization and elsewhere is the acquisition of United States citizenship and nationality by a foreign national. Naturalization is most commonly applied for by a foreign national who has been a lawful permanent resident for the requisite number of years.
Many applicants must be lawful permanent residents for five years. In the case of a spouse of a United States citizen, the spouse may be able to apply for naturalization after three years. An additional area of naturalization is called derivative citizenship. Under this area, if the parents of a minor lawful permanent resident naturalize, the child would also become a United States citizen.
Oklahoma naturalization services normally take approximately three to six months, given there are no delays, from filing to attending the public ceremony where approved applicants take the Oath of Allegiance and receive their Certificates of Naturalization.
