Become a citizen

Catholic Charities of Dallas’ Immigration and Legal Services (ILS) program is offering free to low-cost citizenship services to applicants who qualify for citizenship.

With the recent changes to the N-400 form,  we understand that it can be confusing and time-consuming, so we are here to answer questions and guide you on your citizenship path.

If you are a legal permanent resident eligible to apply for citizenship, there is no better time than now to resolve to become a citizen!

  • Citizens stand to earn up to 11% more in wages over a lifetime, they have access to more and better paying jobs, they travel with a U.S. passport, and they can help their kids under 18 years of age become citizens.

For more information, contact ILS at (214) 634-7182 ext.1423 (Central Office) or (214) 217-5600 (West Dallas).
