What are some benefits of becoming a U.S. citizen?

  • Gives you the right to vote
  • Allows you to serve on a jury
  • Allows you to travel on a U.S. passport
  • Protects you from removal (deportation)
  • Qualifies you for jobs requiring U.S. citizenship
  • Enables you to petition for family members to the United States more easily

U.S. citizenship is automatic if you were born in the United States or certain U.S. territories.  Also, a person may automatically acquire citizenship through a U.S. citizen parent.  There are two ways to obtain U.S. citizenship through your parent: 1) at birth, and 2) after birth but before the age of 18. The U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services provides more information.

Our Attorney can assist you to determine whether you are able to acquire U.S. citizenship.

People that are permanent residents or green card holders and wish to become a U.S. citizen must apply to become a naturalized U.S. citizen.  As a permanent resident, you can apply for U.S. citizenship after you have met the eligibility requirements, which may include:

  • Residency in the United States: 5 years or 3 years as the spouse of a U.S. citizen
  • Demonstrate good moral character
  • Pass the Naturalization Test, which requires a basic knowledge of English, U.S. history, and government

There are special provisions for U.S. military members and the spouses and children of military members. The U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services department provides this information on Citizenship for Military Family Members.

At Habich Law, we will guide you through the naturalization process by helping you with the application process and preparing you for the naturalization examination.

At your naturalization interview, you will be required to answer questions about your application and background.  You will also take an English and civics test unless you qualify for an exemption or waiver. Here are resources for preparing for the exam.
