Naturalization – Applying For U.S. Citizenship
If you have had Permanent Resident (Green Card) status for five years (three years if married to a U.S. Citizen) you may be eligible to apply for U.S. Citizenship. You will need to be able to prove that you have maintained a period of continuous physical presence in the United States and that you can read, write and speak English. You will also need to be able to pass a test regarding knowledge and understanding of U.S. history and government. You cannot be granted U.S. citizenship unless you have good moral character and a clean criminal record. You must also demonstrate that you have a commitment to the principles of the U.S. Constitution and have a favorable disposition toward the United States. The process is exhaustive and requires a great deal of documentation.
