For many immigrants coming to the United States, citizenship in is the ultimate goal and final step in their long journey.

Requirements for Naturalization

Immigrants cannot enjoy the same benefits and rights as citizens in the United States until they become naturalized U.S. citizens. Naturalization has several required steps that individuals must take to successfully complete the process and reach citizenship.

Naturalization applicants are required to:

  • Obtain permanent residence through a green card
  • Live as a permanent resident in the U.S. for at least five years before pursuing citizenship
  • Live as a permanent resident in the U.S. for at least three years if married to a U.S. citizen
  • Complete and submit Form N-400, Application for Naturalization
  • Once form is approved, complete an immigration interview
  • Pass background check
  • Pass English and civics tests
  • Take the Oath of Allegiance

Through the entire naturalization process, it is wise to have the legal guidance, support, and knowledge of our immigration attorneys who can help you along the way.

Naturalization Applications Require the Help of Experienced Lawyers

There are many forms and documents involved in the naturalization process, the most important of them being Form N-400, Application for Naturalization. Form N-400 must be completed correctly and filed with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for approval. Along with your form, you may have to provide documentation, including: marriage licenses, green cards, birth certificates, tax returns, request for certification of military or naval service (if applicable), evidence of financial support, and more.

Failing to submit the proper forms or complete documentation incorrectly could ruin your chances of earning citizenship through naturalization. To avoid such a headache, it would be wise for you to seek the help of a Houston immigration attorney who can review all documents and paperwork requirements, approve their validity, and ensure that all required eligibility documents are met and included. By enlisting the help of our attorneys, who know the complexities of immigration laws inside and out, your naturalization process could progress with ease and peace of mind rather than confusion and anxiety.
