When you apply for citizenship in Kentucky, it is natural to have many questions about the process. You may be concerned, though, about factors which may cause you to be denied citizenship.

You may have gone through a long, arduous process before securing permanent legal residence status in the United States. You definitely are not the first immigrant to have done so, and likely may know of others in your personal or professional life whose stories are similar to yours. Maintaining your status is undoubtedly a high priority if you plan on living somewhere in the nation for the rest of your life. U.S. immigration law often changes and if your knowledge isn't current, you may run into trouble.
