APALC Reduces Service Fee for Citizen Application Workshop (Los Angeles)

Los Angeles –The Asian Pacific American Legal Center (APALC) has reduced the service fee for its next citizenship application workshop on Saturday, May 8, 2010.  The workshop, which will be held at its office at 1145 Wilshire Blvd. in downtown Los Angeles, runs from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  Appointments are required and may be made by calling APALC at (213)977-7500.

At the workshop, APALC staff, pro bono attorneys, and trained volunteers will help attendees determine their eligibility for U.S. citizenship and complete the “naturalization” application form.  APALC reviews the applications before filing them with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS).  Helpful study guides will be available to applicants to help them prepare for their citizenship interview, civics exam, and English test.

The service is provided for only $70 (discounted $10 from APALC’s regular service fee), and applicants must pay the CIS application/biometrics fee of $675 (or $595 for applicants 75 years of age or older).  Attendees must also bring two passport-style photos of themselves and a copy of their green card.

Before making an appointment for the workshop, prospective applicants should check their qualifications for naturalization (particularly their English skills) by visiting the CIS webpagewww.uscis.gov/naturalization.
