In 2009, it costs at least:
- $695 to file the citizenship application – form N-400
- $150 to have someone help you fill out the form and submit to the USCIS
- $50 just to talk an immigration lawyer for the first time
- $1,500 if you decide to hire the lawyer to help with your case
- If you fail your citizenship test, it will cost you even more in time, appeal fees, application fees, and lawyer fees. Total cost would be a few thousand dollars more.
So, after paying all that, you’re still not a US citizenship yet! Time to study! You must take the test and pass, or you will lose all the money!
You will get a free CD from the USCIS (when you’re finger-printed.) But it is for “experts” in English – the material is read very fast; it’s hard for ESL audience to hear each word… If you don’t understand what’s in that CD, don’t worry, lots of immigrants don’t understand a word from that CD either. People said it well: “Nothing is free in America.”
If English is not your mother tongue, you need help. Visit Citizenship Coach website (www.CitizenshipCoach.com) and get their #1 best selling CD in the USA (study guides included in the package.) It will cost you a few dollars more, but the quality is so much better to help you pass your citizenship interview.
You get what you paid for. Don’t try to save just a few dollars. Make sure you buy from the experts you can trust at Citizenship Coach. By the way, you can study online, too, with SurePass Citizenship Test Online. Study anytime, at the comfort of your home.
