Naturalization: Becoming A U.S. Citizen
In 1790, Congress enacted the first laws to create eligibility for American citizenship through the process of naturalization. The Immigration and Nationality Act was passed in 1952, and Title III addresses the process for establishing American citizenship. You may apply for U.S. citizenship if you:
- Are a lawful permanent resident (you have a green card)
- You are married to a U.S. citizen
- You have served in the U.S. military
After establishing that you are eligible to apply for citizenship, you may begin the process of naturalization to become a U.S. citizen.
Steps In The Naturalization Process
The steps in the naturalization process include:
- Completing an application packet, which includes providing extensive personal, work and travel histories, photographs and fingerprints
- Attending a scheduled interview with the USICS office to verify your application
- Taking an English, history and civics test to verify that your understand the history of the United States and its laws
- Attending an oath ceremony to be sworn in as a citizen of the United States
You do not need an immigration lawyer to apply for U.S. citizenship. But an immigration attorney will help ensure that the process goes smoothly. Any errors in your application could cause unnecessary delays.
