The Naturalization Process
Naturalization is the process by which U.S. citizenship is granted to a foreign citizen or national after he or she fulfills the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). In most cases, an applicant for naturalization must be a permanent resident (green card holder) before filing. Except for certain U.S. military members and their dependents, naturalization can only be granted in the United States.
Complicated Eligibility Requirements
Our lawyers have extensive experience helping individuals obtain citizenship through the naturalization process. We understand the complicated naturalization eligibility requirements. To be eligible for naturalization under section 316(a) of the INA, you must be 18 or older and:
Be a permanent resident (green card holder) for at least 5 years immediately preceding the date of filing the Form N-400, Application for Naturalization.
Have lived within the state or U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) district with jurisdiction over the applicant's place of residence, for at least 3 months prior to the date of filing the application.
Have continuous residence in the United States as a permanent resident for at least 5 years immediately preceding the date of the filing the application.
Be physically present in the United States for at least 30 months out of the 5 years immediately preceding the date of filing the application.
Reside continuously within the United States from the date of application for naturalization up to the time of naturalization.
Be able to read, write, and speak English and have knowledge and an understanding of U.S. history and government (civics).
