Want to Become a U.S. Citizen?

There is nothing more exciting than witnessing a room full of people wave small American flags as they joyfully take an oath of allegiance as newly naturalized U.S. citizens. Many of these individuals immigrated to this country to escape poverty, gang violence, and civil wars. Others simply wanted a better life for themselves and their families. The road to American citizenship can be a long and confusing process, but it is not impossible.

In order to become a U.S. citizen, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Be a legal permanent U.S. resident for at least five years
  • Have good moral character
  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Have a basic grasp of English (written, oral, and reading skills)

Candidates must also pass a test on U.S. history and finally, take an oath of allegiance. If you wish to become a U.S. citizen, our firm can help you work towards that goal.
