New London immigration center to host free citizenship clinic

New London’s Immigration Advocacy and Support Center is hosting a free clinic Oct. 20 during which trained lawyers and volunteers will help people complete their citizenship applications.

The event will run from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 8 Washington St. While participation is free, applying for citizenship costs $725, which can be waived in some situations.

In general, those who can apply for citizenship have been a legal permanent resident for five years (or three years if married to a U.S. citizen), speak basic English and don’t have a serious criminal history.

To register for the clinic, call (860) 629-7758 or email
