Understanding The Legal Requirements

Naturalization comes with many requirements; here are the most common:

  • You must be at least 18 years old.
  • You must have been a permanent resident for five years (or three years if you're married to a U.S. citizen), or have served in the U.S. military.
  • You must have been physically living in the country for a certain amount of time.
  • You must demonstrate good moral character by abiding by our laws.
  • You must be able to speak, read and write simple English (with some exceptions).
  • You must understand how the U.S. government works (with some exceptions).
  • You must pass a naturalization test, which focuses on English, civics and history.

Are you worried that you don't meet the requirements? Don't give up. There may still be other ways for you to qualify for citizenship through naturalization. Talk to our experienced attorney about your unique situation and options.
