Citizenship Through Naturalization

Immigration Attorney in Northern Virginia

The United States Supreme Court has defined naturalization as the act of adopting a foreigner and allowing him to have the privileges of a native United States citizen. For many immigrants, becoming a citizen is the final fulfillment of their American dream, but most do not know what options they have to obtain this goal. At The Law Offices of Miguel Rivera, PLLC, we are proud to offer quality representation and trusted guidance to individuals looking to obtain citizenship through naturalization. We encourage immigrants currently holding green cards or looking to adjust their status to contact a Northern Virginia immigration lawyer from our firm as soon as possible.

How to Apply for Naturalization

In order to qualify for naturalization, there are a few requirements that must be met. Eligibility requirements can be discussed with your attorney. Any of the following qualifications may make you eligible for naturalization:

  • You have been lawfully residing within the United States for at least five years
  • You are a spouse of a United States citizen and have been residing as a permanent resident for at least three years
  • You have a child that may qualify for citizenship because they were born outside of the United States to parents that are United States citizens
  • You meet all the eligibility requirements through service in a United States armed service branch

You and your lawyer can discuss in detail the particulars of your case and help determine if you are eligible for citizenship or if you may already be a citizen by birth or adoption. If you are eligible for naturalization, you will need to apply for citizenship with the United States Citizen and Immigration Services through completion of a naturalization form, either Form N-400 or Form M-599. You will also be required to take a naturalization test to show that you have a basic understanding of United States laws, history and civics.
