Am I eligible to become a United States citizen?

New Jersey Naturalization Lawyers

There are a couple of requirements one must meet in order to become a United States citizen. In order to properly naturalize, the foreign national must:

  • Pass a United States government and history test
  • Have been a permanent resident in the country legally for at least five years (this requirement changes if you have been married to a US citizen which changes it to three years)
  • Give an oath of loyalty to the United States of America
  • Have been physically present in the country for over 50% of the five year requirement
  • Being able to write, read and speak English
  • Being a good, moral person

Foreign nationals can also get naturalized by being sponsored by a US citizen, through birth or through acquisition or derivation. Naturalization can also get revoked, so it is important to have a knowledgeable and aggressive naturalization lawyer on your side.
