The process by which a foreign national can become a United States citizen is known as naturalization. Those who meet certain eligibility requirements have the opportunity to apply for U.S. citizenship through this method.
You may qualify for citizenship through naturalization if:
- You are 18 or older
- You are a person of good moral character and willing to adhere to the principles of the U.S. Constitution
- You have the ability to read, write, and speak English
- You have an understanding of both the history and government of the United States
- You have held a green card for a minimum of five years
- You have continuously resided in the U.S. for at least five years
- You have been physically present in the United States for at least two and a half years out of the five years of residence
- You have resided continuously within the state or USCIS district in which is your residence for at least three months
- You reside in the U.S. continuously from the time you file for naturalization until you acquire citizenship
Those who have not held a green card for at least five years may still be able to apply under either one of two other conditions. First, if they have been a permanent resident in the U.S. for at least three years and are married to a U.S. citizen, they may apply for naturalization. Second, others may gain eligibility through having qualifying service in the U.S. armed forces.
What is the Naturalization Process?
If you are eligible to apply for citizenship you may begin the naturalization process. Below is an overview:
- Prepare the Application for Naturalization, Form N-400
- Submit the firm and pay fees
- If applicable, attend a biometrics appointment
- Complete the citizenship interview and test.
- USCIS will send you a decision based on Form N-400
- Take the Oath of Allegiance
If you need guidance with any of these matters, reach out to our citizenship lawyers today! We have years of experience and are prepared to guide you with every step of the way.
What is Derivative Citizenship?
Derivative citizenship is given to children who were born outside the United States but have parents that are U.S. citizens. When only one parent has U.S. citizenship, the child may still acquire citizenship, so long as the parents fulfill certain requirements prior to the birth of the child. For more information about the laws of derivative citizenship and how we can help secure citizenship for your child who was born outside the U.S., get in touch with our immigration lawyers today.
