I'm going to be applying for dual citizenship at the Consulate in Philadelphia once I have all my documents together (if that day ever comes...!). However, I heard a friend of a friend say that they knew someone who hired a lawyer to expedite the process and that they were awarded dual citizenship after a period of only three or four months (as opposed to the year-long wait I've been hearing about). Is this true? If so, what kind of lawyer should I be looking for? Does anyone know how much this sort of thing usually costs? I'd appreciate any information and/or advice.
I would imagine you need an immigration lawyer. I don't know where you live, but in New Jersey hiring a lawyer for any purpose is expensive. Hourly rates can be $200 to $400 an hour. If you are getting all your documents in order, you are doing the hard part. Only a suggestion, but why not go to the Consulate and find out how long the wait is first.
