Can I Become a U.S. Citizen?

Many potential clients and family members come to us with questions about their eligibility for U.S. citizenship. In order to apply for citizenship, one must be:

  • A legal permanent resident in the U.S. for five years or,
  • Married to a U.S. citizen for at least three years

The naturalization process is not a simple as many people believe. The information they receive from USCIS often appears straightforward. However, this is not always the case.

During the naturalization process, USCIS will review your entire background, including any previous applications you have made. You may experience problems related to allegedly inconsistent or incomplete information, and any problems could cause a delay or denial.

It is also important to note that criminal convictions can bar someone from becoming a citizen, even if they otherwise meet the government’s criteria for citizenship. The assistance of a qualified immigration attorney is critical. If you have questions about your specific circumstances, the attorneys at Maiona Ward Immigration Law can review your case and let you know if you qualify for naturalization.

The Advantages of U.S. Citizenship

There are many advantages to going through the naturalization process. As a citizen you will be able to sponsor relatives who wish to immigrate to the United States, you can live and work in the U.S. indefinitely, and you can obtain a U.S. passport. Bestowing United States citizenship on a legal resident is the greatest benefit the United States can pass to an individual.
