Citizenship Attorney in West Palm Beach

Sarah S. Rama, ESQ, LL.M.

Many immigrants dream of one day becoming an American citizen. Citizenship may be possible if you fulfill the conditions for citizenship by parentage or naturalization. Naturalization is simply the process through which an immigrant is granted U.S. citizenship after meeting all the requirements of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as determined by Congress. Most individuals apply as a permanent resident, but you may also qualify to apply as a permanent resident who is a member of the U.S. military or who is the spouse of a U.S. Citizen.

Do I qualify to become a U.S. citizen?

To qualify for the path to naturalization most commonly taken, the applicant must be a permanent resident for at least 5 years. If you have held permanent resident status for at least 5 years, you may apply for naturalization if you meet the following requirements:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • Permanent resident for a minimum of 5 years immediately before filing the application (Form N-400, Application for Naturalization)
  • Lived within the state in which the application was filed for at least 3 months before the application was filed
  • Lived in the U.S. as permanent resident continuously for at least 5 years immediately before filing the application
  • Physically in the U.S. for a minimum of 30 months out of the 5 years of permanent residency immediately before filing the application
  • Live continuously in the U.S. from the day of applying for naturalization until the day naturalization is granted
  • Able to speak, read, and write English and possess understanding and knowledge of the government and history of the U.S.
  • Have virtuous character, value the principles of the U.S. Constitution, and are inclined to the happiness and order of the U.S. at all relevant times under the law
