To become a United States citizen, an immigrant must go through a naturalization process. This process requires you to complete several steps and meet requirements before you can become a naturalized citizen. The chances of success are often greater with help from a skilled immigration attorney.

Eligibility Requirements for Naturalization

To successfully apply for the naturalization process and become a United States citizen, you must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Be at least 18 years of age when applying for naturalization;
  • Must have been a green card holder for the past three or five years, depending on your circumstances;
  • Must show a continuous physical presence and residence in the United States;
  • Must be able to speak, write, and read basic English;
  • Must demonstrate good moral character;
  • Must demonstrate basic knowledge and understanding of U.S. government and history;
  • Must show loyalty to the principles of the U.S. Constitution; and
  • Must be willing and ready to take the Oath of Allegiance.

Understanding the Naturalization Process

The process of naturalization begins with completing Form N-400 Application for Naturalization. You’ll then file your application and the required fee with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Even if you meet all the eligibility requirements, having an attorney complete and file this documentation for you can be beneficial.

The N-400 application might seem like a straightforward petition. However, many applicants get denied because of inaccuracies or incomplete information. The examining USCIS officer might also make a mistake in assessing your eligibility and wrongfully deny your petition. The best way to avoid complications is by having an experienced immigration attorney help in preparing and filing your petition.

Once your N-400 application is filed, you will need to take the following steps to complete the process:

  1. Biometrics. If biometrics are needed in your case, which they are in most cases, you will receive a notice from USCIS setting up a biometrics appointment, including the date, time, and location where you need to appear.
  2. Interview. USCIS will schedule a time for you to be interviewed by an examination officer who will verify the information in your application. The officer will also test your English skills and your understanding of basic U.S. history.
  3. Oath of Allegiance. If your interview is successful, you will be scheduled for a date and time to take your Oath of Allegiance, which formally makes you a United States citizen.
