Applying For Citizenship? Our Immigration Lawyers Can Help!
Becoming a U.S. citizen is no easy feat. The sooner you involve an experienced immigration lawyer in your case, the better prepared you could be for the naturalization and citizenship process.
To become a naturalized U.S. citizen, you must first establish permanent residence in the country. If you have a green card and you have been a permanent resident of the U.S. for at least five years, the requirements listed below will also need to be met to apply for citizenship.
- You are at least 18 and have demonstrated good moral character.
- You can read, write and speak English.
- You have been present physically in the U.S. for at least half of the required five years of permanent residency.
- You have spent no more than one year outside of the U.S.
- You have lived in the state (or district) where you are filing your application for at least three months.
- Your primary home is in the U.S.
- You can pass a test on basic U.S. history and government.
- You are ready to swear your loyalty to the U.S. and believe in the principles of the U.S. Constitution.
