We would be happy to assist you with this process. Our consultation fee would be applied against our fixed legal fee should you decide to utilize our firm for the naturalization filing.
This process should not be difficult but given the length of time you should consult an attorney to make sure that there are no complications in your history that might disqualify you.

It sounds like you likely qualify for naturalization as a US citizen.

You may find free information on the process here:
You may already be a citizen if you have had your permanent residency for such a long time. If your parents ever became citizens, you may have become one automatically. In that case you'd be eligible to apply for a US passport and/or a Certificate of Citizenship. Alternatively, if your parents never became citizens, or if you did not automatically become one, then you may be eligible to file an application for naturalization. You should speak with an attorney before filing an application for naturalization, because if you automatically became a citizen, USCIS will not approve the case.
