The Spanish Community Center is excited to partner with the Southwest Suburban Immigrant Project to offer a citizenship workshop on Saturday, June 24th, from 9am to 12pm at Joliet Central High school on 201 East Jefferson Street.
Attendees will receive a personalized, low-cost legal consultation and assistance with completing the application for naturalization and study materials. The consultation fee during this workshop will be $50 (payable by debit/credit card or cash), compared to the average $100 to $250 initial consultation fee one may expect from a private law firm.
To apply for citizenship, the U.S. Citizenship & The Immigration Services charges a fee of $725.00 (money order or check) unless the applicant qualifies for a fee waiver.
To obtain information on eligibility requirements and list of documents that you need to bring to the workshop, or call/text the Spanish Community Center at (815) 277-9683. YOu may also call the Southwest Suburban Immigrant Project at (630) 296-6755.
SCC Immigration Specialist Angel Contreras said, “These workshops are always a great success in our area. It is good to see that community member interest in U.S. citizenship is so high. The best part of these workshops is that we’re able to help so many people realize their dream of becoming American citizens in a mass setting. We are excited to collaborate with the Southwest Suburban Immigrant Project and Joliet Central High School to help make this happen. I would like to invite and encourage anyone that has any questions to please contact us immediately.”
