Naturalization is the process by which U.S. Citizenship is granted to a lawful permanent resident after meeting the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Applicants for citizenship must file an Application for Naturalization (Form-400) with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). 

To obtain application forms and naturalization information, please contact the USCIS National Customer Service Center, Phone: 1-800-375-5283, or visit their website at   USCIS processes all naturalization applications and provides the Court with a list of the candidates selected to be naturalized in the Federal Court. The Court does not schedule applicants for oath ceremonies.

The Judicial Officers for the Middle District of Louisiana are honored to take part in the process of Naturalization.  The Middle District holds two naturalization ceremonies per year to commemorate Law Day in May and Constitution Day in September.  Naturalization ceremonies at the Middle District are typically held at the Middle District Courthouse in the ceremonial courtroom or outdoors under the oaks.
