Revocation Of Citizenship

Defending You From Revocation Of Citizenship

Being threatened with revocation of citizenship can be one of the most terrifying experiences of your life. The life you had once hoped for in the United States could be coming to an end. Additionally, you may not be aware that the threat is coming, and you could feel like you are powerless to stop the process.

Despite the potential challenges, you do have a right to fight back against the revocation of citizenship, but you must act quickly to defend yourself. Stacer, PLC, stands ready as your knowledgeable and responsive advocate when you are confronted with revocation of citizenship.

When Can Citizenship Be Revoked?

The U.S. Department of State can revoke the citizenship of a naturalized citizen in extreme circumstances, including:

  • False information on immigration records: Failing to disclose facts like your criminal record, personal identity or covering up illegal entry into the U.S.
  • Membership in a subversive organization: This includes participation in a terrorist organization or a subversive political group within five years of your naturalization.
  • Dishonorable military discharge: Committing a severe, felony-equivalent crime with a member of the U.S. military such as sexual assault, desertion or aiding the enemy.
  • Failure to testify before Congress: Refusing to cooperate with a federal investigation in Congress

Revocation of citizenship affects not only your future in the United States but your sponsored family members as well. While the consequences of revocation are severe, it is important to remember that you do have rights in this process.
