We understand the several available ways to obtain citizenship and can advise you about the procedures that are available to you.
Generally, to be eligible for naturalization you must:
1. Be age 18 or older
2. Be a permanent resident for a certain amount of time (usually 5 years or 3 years if you are married to a U.S. citizen)
3. Be a person of good moral character, usually meaning the absence of a serious criminal record
4. Have a basic knowledge of U.S. government (this can be excepted due to permanent physical or mental impairment)
5. Have a period of continuous residence and physical presence in the United States
6. Be able to read, write, and speak basic English. There are exceptions to this rule for someone who at the time of filing: - Is 55 years old and has been a permanent resident for at least 15 years; or - Is 50 years old and has been a permanent resident for at least 20 years; or - Has a permanent physical or mental impairment that makes the individual unable to fulfill these requirements
