AUDIENCE: U.S. lawful permanent residents (green card holders) planning to take the next step and apply for naturalized U.S. citizenship; and the legal assistants or staff at community-based organizations who seek to help them. ------------------------------- • Nearly 773,000 people applied for citizenship in the last year statistics were taken (2013). (Stats at http://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/publications/ois_yb_2013_0.pdf.) • This book does more than any other to not only cover the basics (naturalization application procedures and test preparation) but to alert readers to special exceptions that might allow them to apply early (for example, if married to a U.S. citizen) or take an easier version of the exam (for example, due to advanced age or disability). • Holds readers’ hands through the entire process and beyond, even covering what happens if they get denied, and what their new rights are upon being sworn in as a U.S. citizen.
