Qualifying for Naturalization
Our team of experienced immigration attorneys can provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the qualifications needed for naturalization in Brooklyn. In addition to filling out all requisite forms, such as the Form N-400, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) outlines several requirements for naturalization, including:
- Age: Applicants must be at least 18 years old.
- Residency: You must have been a permanent resident (green card holder) for at least five years. In some cases, such as for certain U.S. military members and their families, residency can be shorter.
- Physical presence: You need to have lived in the U.S. for at least 30 months of the last five years.
- Good moral character: The USCIS may deny naturalization if the applicant has certain criminal records.
- Language proficiency: Applicants must demonstrate an understanding of the English language, including an ability to read, write, and speak.
- Knowledge of U.S. government and history: Applicants are required to pass a civics test.
- Oath of allegiance: To become a U.S. citizen, you must take the Oath of Allegiance to the U.S. Constitution.
It’s important to remember that every naturalization case is different and certain circumstances might require additional qualifications. That is why it is advisable to consult with an immigration attorney who has your best interest at heart to navigate the process effectively.
