Nothing gives us more pleasure than helping clients realize their goal of U.S. citizenship.  As a naturalized citizen, you will enjoy the right to:

  • Vote
  • Hold elected office (except president and vice president)
  • Hold certain government jobs
  • Apply for certain scholarships and grants
  • Help immediate relatives obtain visas
  • Protection from deportation
  • Public assistance
  • Travel outside the U.S. for unlimited periods of time
  • Return to the U.S. after travel abroad
  • Protect your children’s right to remain in the U.S.

When you become a naturalized citizen, your minor children, who are in your permanent custody, automatically become citizens, too.

In general, to be eligible for U.S. citizenship, you must demonstrate:

  • A period of continuous residence and physical presence in the United States
  • An ability to read, write, and speak English
  • A knowledge and understanding of U.S. history and government
  • Good moral character
  • Attachment to the principles of the U.S. Constitution
  • Favorable disposition toward the United States

In addition:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age when you apply for citizenship
  • You must have been a legal permanent resident of the U.S. for five years less 90 days at the time you file for citizenship. (If you are married to a U.S. citizen, you may file two years sooner.)
  • You must have been physically present in the U.S. for 30 of the past 60 months.
  • You have not been outside the U.S. for a continuous period of six months or more during the previous 60 months.
