Eligibility for Citizenship or Naturalization

Typically, qualifying for naturalization means you must meet these requirements:

  • You must be a lawful permanent resident, holding that status between three or five years depending on how you obtained lawful permanent resident status
  • You must be at least 18 years old
  • You must show that you can speak, write, read, and understand English
  • You must be able to pass a test of U.S. history and U.S. government
  • You must have resided in the United States for specific periods of time

You may already be a citizen:

  • There are some instances where you may have automatically acquired citizenship at the time you were born or derived citizenship at some point in time
  • If you are an adopted child of a U.S. citizen or have a parent who naturalized to become a U.S. citizen when you were a child, you may qualify for a certificate of citizenship

Contact our offices for a full review of your family’s immigration history to determine if you are already a citizen and just require the paperwork to prove it.
