Fairfax Citizenship Lawyer

How to Become a United States Citizen

Have you been a green card holder in the United States for at least five years and have lived in the same state for the past three or more months? You may be eligible to apply for citizenship through naturalization. As a citizen of the United States, you will have certain rights that were restricted when you were a lawful permanent resident.

Citizens can bring family members into the country, access more jobs, vote, be protected by the government, receive additional student aid, participate in federal juries, and much more. The benefits of being a citizen cannot be overstated.

Types of Citizenship

An individual can become a U.S. citizen in multiple ways. The first is through birth on United States soil, whether within the continental U.S. or in a U.S. territory such as Puerto Rico. Citizenship can also be achieved through parents who are U.S. citizens. If you are an immigrant, however, you must pursue citizenship through naturalization. This process has residency requirements as mentioned above and also requires you to take part in an interview, an English test, and a civics test. Having a Fairfax immigration lawyer by your side to guide you is invaluable to the success of your of citizenship pursuit.
