Naturalization to U.S. Citizenship
You May Qualify for U.S. Citizenship Naturalization if you have:
- Been a permanent resident for at least 5 years and meet all other eligibility requirements.
- Been a permanent resident for 3 years or more and meet all eligibility requirements to file as a spouse of a U.S. citizen.
- Qualifying service in the U.S. armed forces and meet all other eligibility requirements.
- Proof of tax payments for the 3 or 5 year period before application
- Proof of your “Good Moral Character” for the 3 or 5 year period before application
- No disqualifying criminal convictions that bar citizenship
- No existing criminal sentence that still requires completion
Your Child May Qualify for U.S. Citizenship Naturalization if:
- You are a U.S. citizen;
- The child was born outside the U.S.;
- The child is currently residing outside the U.S.;
- And all other eligibility requirements are met.
Note: You may already be a U.S. citizen and not need to apply for naturalization! If your biological or adoptive parent(s) became a U.S. citizen before you reached the age of 18, this may be possible but the law is tricky!
