Citizenship and Naturalization

There are many benefits to becoming a United States citizen. For example, you can vote in elections, travel with a United States Passport, and even apply for other relatives to become Lawful Permanent Residents in the United States.

“Naturalization” is the process of becoming a United States Citizen by applying for citizenship with immigration officials.

To become a citizen, you need to prove to immigration officials at your naturalization interview that:

    • You are a Lawful Permanent Resident;
  • You have lived in the United States lawfully for a certain period of time;
  • You are at least 18 years old;
  • You are a person who has good moral character; and
  • You can read, speak, and write in basic English.


You will also need to correctly answer a number of questions about United States history and government at your naturalization interview.

Citizenship is not always the best path for everyone, so be sure to speak with our immigration attorney to determine if it is in your best interest to apply for naturalization.
