Citizenship and Naturalization
There are several ways to become a US Citizen. The two most common are:
- A person who has had a green card for five (5) or more years, has called the US home for the last five (5) years, and has been physically present in the US for thirty (30) months of those five years.
- A person who is married to a US citizen, who has had a green card for three (3) or more years, has called the US home for the last three (3) years, and has been physically present in the US for eighteen (18) months of those three years, provided that their spouse has been a US citizen for the last three years as well.
PLEASE NOTE: A criminal background, or other negative factors in your history, might prevent you from becoming a US citizen.
All persons, with some exceptions, applying for US citizenship must show that they have had good moral character during the required period, that they can read and write in English, and that they can pass a civics test. All persons applying for US citizenship will also have to take an oath to show that they will uphold the values of the US and it's Constitution.
