How to Become a Citizen
Citizenship isn’t just handed out to people who apply. The process exists to weed out people who the United States thinks are not serious enough or are not good candidates. You can make your citizen application stand out and increase your chances of getting approved by hiring an immigration lawyer who specializes in immigration and citizenship law.
We can help you apply and prove each of these requirements and more:
- Be a legal permanent resident for 3 years if married and 5 years if not married
- Be present in the United States for at least 50% of the time
- Have good moral character
- Take an oath of loyalty to the United States
- Prove simple English comprehension
- Pass an exam in U.S. history and government
Becoming a citizen has many benefits, including being able to sponsor your children and spouse so that they can also become citizens. You will also become eligible for citizen benefits, like voting, social security, and welfare.
