Citizenship And Naturalization
At US Immigration Law Group, LLP, we are committed to helping our clients reach the best possible results in their citizenship application process.
Generally, one must be a Permanent Resident (green card holder) for five years to be eligible to apply for U.S. citizenship. Persons married to a U.S. citizen, however may apply within three years of becoming lawful permanent residents. In addition, there are continuous residence requirements limiting the length and duration of overseas stays, physical presence requirements during the three or five year period, and a three month in state residency requirement.
The applicant must also show good moral conduct by complying with criminal and tax laws. Lastly, the applicant must pass a civics and history exam at the interview while demonstrating proficiency in the English language.
U.S. citizenship is the ultimate goal for many immigrants. The competent team at U.S. IMMIGRATION LAW GROUP, LLP treats every client with care and will work diligently toward this important goal.
*Serious criminal offenses may make you ineligible; therefore individuals with criminal histories should contact a qualified immigration attorney to see if you qualify.
