Where: Center for Employment Training, 701 Vine Street, San Jose, CA

 

Center for Employment Training, Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County, the ILRC, and CLINIC are co-sponsoring a two-day training on naturalization and citizenship in San Jose, California. It is free for participating staff from non-profit organizations working on naturalization and citizenship issues in the Bay Area, especially, Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties.

 

All participants will receive a free CD-ROM copy of the ILRC’s best selling manual, Naturalization and U.S. Citizenship: The Essential Legal Guide.  Space is limited!

 

Day 1: The first day of this training will include a review of the general requirements for naturalization including continuous residence, physical presence, good moral character, the English and Civics requirements, and the red flag issues that can cause an applicant to be denied or even deported. Additionally, we will review the various ways in which an absence from the United States can affect one’s naturalization application, the best ways to complete the naturalization application (N-400), application procedures, and how to assisting special groups of applicants through fee waivers, oath waivers, the 50/20 and 55/15 English exemptions, disability waivers, and securing accommodations for people with disabilities.

Day 2: The second day of the this training cover some of the more complex aspects of immigration law, including advanced good moral character issues, how a criminal conviction can affect a naturalization application, and citizenship for children. 

During the good moral character discussions during this two-day training, we will delve into the reasons why some naturalization applicants could be deportable, as well as how failure to register for the selective service, failure to pay child support, failure to file income taxes, and other issues can affect one’s naturalization application. Additionally, we will review how different criminal convictions can affect one’s naturalization application.
