Naturalization & Citizenship
U.S. Citizenship and the Naturalization Process
Tran Law Group — U.S. Immigration Lawyers
Applicants for United States citizenship must fall into one of the following four categories:
- Lawful permanent resident status and continuous residence in the United States for at least five years
- Asylum status and continuous residence in the United States for at least four years
- Married to a U.S. citizen and continuous residence in the United States for at least three
- Lawful permanent resident status with U.S. military service and presence in the United States for at least three years
If you do fall into one of these categories, you must also be able to demonstrate good moral character and a belief in the U.S. Constitution and the U.S. government. That said — some of the other requirements (such as the ability to read, write, and speak English) may be modified or waived for certain applicants, including spouses of U.S citizens, elderly applicants and individuals with certain types of health conditions. The lawyers at Tran Law Group provide services to help demonstrate these traits and offer a free consultation to determine which service is best for you.
Our attorneys can explain the naturalization process in clear, easy-to-understand terms. They can help you with the citizenship application requirements and preparation for the exam. They may even be able to help you become a U.S. citizen if you have criminal issues in your past.
