Requirements for Naturalization
Naturalization is the process of becoming a U.S. citizen. An individual born in another country may be granted citizenship after he or she fulfills the requirements of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
You may qualify for nationalization if you meet all eligibility requirements and have:
- At least 5 years of permanent residency;
- 3 years of permanent residency and be married to a U.S. citizen; or
- Qualifying service in the U.S. armed forces
Even if you meet the above requirements, there are factors that can result in a denial. This includes arrests and excessive time spent outside the United States. Due to the requirements and possible disqualifying factors, it is important to speak with our Coppell immigration attorneys to verify your eligibility prior to starting the process.
Passing the Naturalization Test
You must pass the naturalization test to become a naturalized U.S. citizen. During the interview, you will need to answer questions about your application and background and pass an English and Civics test. There are 128 questions that must be learned for this test. In some situations, people can apply for a waiver or exemption. The team at Christensen Immigration Attorneys helps clients prepare for the interview and can even accompany them when needed.
How Long Does Naturalization Take?
After submitting your Form N-400 and any necessary documents, it may take anywhere from 8 - 12 months for the naturalization process to complete. Depending on your situation, it may be shorter or longer. There are some circumstances where USCIS will request supplemental documents or they will schedule a second naturalization interview. You may also visit this page by USCIS for an approximation in processing times. If your case is taking too long, you may send an inquiry about it.
