Citizenship

We assist with U.S. and German Citizenship matters, including applications for U.S. Citizenship, Beibehaltungsgenehmigungen (Retention Certificates) and Wiedereinbürgerungsanträgen (Re-obtaining German Citizenship). 

As an attorney admitted in the U.S. and Germany, Ms. von Geyso holds over a decade of experience in German Citizenship law. She has handled numerous applications for retention certificates to remain German when applying for U.S. Citizenship (dual Citizenship -“Beibehaltungsgenehmigungen”) and applications for re-obtaining German citizenship for former German nationals (“Wiedereinbürgerungen”). She has been advising colleagues and clients worldwide in obtaining / re-obtaining German Citizenship for former German Citizen and their descendents that were persecuted on political, racial and religious grounds during World War II and she has been involved in various complex German citizenship cases researching back to the German citizenship laws prior to the German Empire in 1871.
