FULLERTON, Calif. (September 7, 2016) – CitizenPath, an online service for do-it-yourself immigration filers, is providing its services at no cost in celebration of Citizenship Day 2016. Constitution Day and Citizenship Day will be celebrated on September 17, 2016. It’s the 229th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution, but it’s also a popular day to reflect on the value of American Citizenship.
To apply for citizenship, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires eligible permanent residents to file Form N-400, Application for Naturalization. The 20-page application comes with another 18 pages of instructions. Thus, many hopeful Americans can find the process overwhelming.
CitizenPath’s self-directed service helps applicants determine their eligibility for citizenship and simplifies each step through the Application for Naturalization (N-400). Designed by attorneys, the software simplifies complicated immigration forms similar to how TurboTax® helps its customers with tax preparation. CitizenPath checks for common errors and even warns applicants when there may be a legal problem. The software streamlines the application process, making it possible for many applicants to prepare Form N-400 in less than an hour.
“We’re very excited about Citizenship Day,” said Russ Leimer, CitizenPath co-founder and chief marketing officer. “It’s the perfect way for us to give back to our customers.”
Upon completing the process, users are provided with a ready-to-sign application and a set of simplified filing instructions so that they know exactly how to proceed. Both documents are delivered as PDFs.
CitizenPath’s service to prepare N-400 normally costs $120 and is backed by a money-back guarantee if USCIS doesn’t accept the application. CitizenPath wants to recognize the people that are taking steps to become naturalized U.S. citizens and will provide its online document preparation services for the N-400 application at no cost on September 17, 2016. Users should visit CitizenPath.com and select “Apply for U.S. Citizenship” or go directly to CitizenPath.com/N-400 to check eligibility and start the application.
Developed by immigration attorneys and internet experts, CitizenPath uses technology to simplify the process of preparing complex USCIS immigration forms. The company’s software identifies common errors and even alerts users if a problematic answer requires the assistance of a lawyer. Users also receive easy-to-follow filing instructions based on their answers. CitizenPath is a cost-effective immigration document preparation tool for the do-it-yourself filer.
