If those dates are not convenient, the Immigration and Citizenship program also hosts Citizenship Forums on one Saturday of the month in different areas around Houston. At our monthly forums, you will receive a legal screening with an immigration attorney to determine whether you are eligible for citizenship. If you are eligible, volunteers will help fill out your form for citizenship. You will also receive educational materials to begin studying for the civics exam.

Citizenship Forums
Community members who think they might be eligible for Citizenship may attend one of our monthly Citizenship Forums to learn whether they qualify. Forums are held one Saturday out of every month at varying locations across Houston.

Citizenship forums are limited to the first 75 people that arrive. You will receive a thorough legal consultation with an immigration attorney to determine whether you qualify for citizenship. If you do qualify, a volunteer will assist you in filling out the required forms for Citizenship, you will be provided with all the information you need to send your packet to USCIS, and receive study materials to prepare for the civics examination during your interview.

Call our office at 713.273.3707 to learn about upcoming Citizenship Forum dates.

The BakerRipley Immigration and Citizenship program also offers a free course to prepare for United States citizenship.

While in class, students simulate mock interviews, participate in USCIS events, and receive free textbooks and resources to prepare for their interview.
