  • Access to jobs and social services not available to non-citizens
  • Overall peace of mind

How Does Naturalization Work?

Naturalization is the process by which a foreign individual can become a citizen of the United States.. The process of naturalization is not a simple one. You will need to meet certain criteria, complete an extensive application, go through a naturalization interview, and pass an English and U.S. civics test.

Some of the requirements of naturalization include that you:

  • Have a knowledge of U.S. civics and history
  • Take an oath of allegiance to the U.S.
  • Have the ability to write, read, and speak English
  • Are a person of good moral character
  • Have not been convicted of certain criminal acts
  • Are at least 18 years old (except active-duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces)
  • Have resided for more than three months in the place of application
  • Have demonstrated continuous residence for the required period of time
  • Have been a permanent resident of the U.S. for at least five years (or at least 3 years if your applying for naturalization based on your marriage to a U.S. citizen)

There are other specific requirements that may apply in certain cases, such as not having taken trips outside of the U.S. for more than six months in the past five years. Our team can assess your specific situation and make sure you qualify for naturalization.

While U.S. citizenship can be obtained by being born in the U.S. or being born to U.S. citizen parents, these situations do not apply to everyone. At Jacobs & Schlesinger, our citizenship attorneys can help you prepare for the naturalization application process.
