4 Grounds for Denaturalization & Appealing Citizenship Revocation (Pt. 1)

Denaturalization refers to the process of revoking a person’s citizenship in the U.S. and, in many cases, deporting that individual. Despite the fact that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) doesn’t commonly take this type of action against people, it is, nevertheless, possible and more likely to occur in certain situations.

Lying about or holding back personal information on citizenship applications can be grounds for denaturalization. Contact us for help if you are facing denaturalization proceedings.

Causes for Denaturalization: 4 Grounds for Revoking Citizenship

The specific reasons that USCIS may initiate denaturalization proceedings against a person include that the individual is suspected to have:

  1. Lied on his citizenship application – All information provided to USCIS as part of a citizenship application must be truthful and complete. This means that, if or when a person intentionally provides false information or fails to disclose any relevant information, USCIS can take action to try to revoke that person’s citizenship. Examples of such relevant information that must be provided truthfully and completely include a person’s criminal history and his full legal name (and any other names he may have gone by in the past).It’s important to point out here that, even if a person has been granted citizenship based on incomplete or false information, USCIS can initiate denaturalization proceedings at any point in the future when it becomes aware that citizenship has been granted based on misinformation.
