Helping People Navigate the Citizenship Application Process with Citizenshipworks
It is unlawful to help people fill out citizenship forms or even tell them which form to use unless you are accredited to do so. Therefore, direct them to Citizenshipworks. Citizenshipworks is a free online service that helps you apply for citizenship, step-by-step. They will tell you about any potential problems with your application and connect you to the expert help you need, either online or in person. They also tell you what other documents you need to submit, and what to expect after you apply.
