Naturalization and Citizenship

Becoming a United States Permanent Resident

According to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), a person can become a naturalized citizen and remain in the United States legally and permanently by fulfilling the requirements outlined by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). To become naturalized citizen, you must meet all requirements and complete the N-400 form; a document that provides USCIS with information about you including your history of residence, marital status, and your overall moral character. You must be in good standing by meeting the residency requirements of the INA and having no recent criminal history and good moral character. There are several paths to becoming a U.S. citizen, including:

General Path to Citizenship

To obtain citizenship through a general path, you must be at least 18 years or older and a lawful permanent resident for five years. You must be able to read, write, and speak English as well as have a general understanding of U.S. history and government.

Spouses of United States Citizens

If you hold a green card and have been a permanent resident of the United States for at least three years, you may be eligible to receive citizenship.

Military Service

One of the fastest ways to obtain citizenship in the United States is by serving in the United States armed service. In times of peace and in times of war, you may become a United States citizen through a streamlined process as established in the INA.
