Medical Exceptions to the Citizenship Test

Citizenship Test Exceptions Explained

When applying for naturalization, an applicant will have to take the English and civics test in order to be granted citizenship. However, in some circumstances, USCIS will waive the requirement in cases of certain medical exceptions. In order to qualify for the medical exception waiver, an applicant must be able to show that they have a physical or developmental disability or some form of mental impairment. In order to get the waiver approved and in place, one needs to have a doctor's certification and have the doctor fill out the required USCIS form.

At Fayad Law, P.C., our Richmond citizenship attorneys are intimately familiar with the requirements and procedures for obtaining a medical exception waiver to the citizenship test. We have been practicing immigration law since 2004 and have successfully guided many naturalization applicants through the medical exception process.

We will be glad to answer all of your questions and work directly with your doctor and make certain that your request for a medical exception is properly drafted and submitted for a successful outcome.
