Information about Citizenship & Naturalization

Citizenship is often a very important goal for many individuals living and working in the United States with a Green Card or immigrant visa. Being a naturalized citizen has many advantages both for the individual and the individual's employer. The naturalization process can be incredibly complicated without the assistance of a knowledgeable Tampa immigration attorney. Mistakes or missed deadlines during the naturalization process can set you back and threaten your chances of attaining United States citizenship. An immigration attorney will effectively guide you through the long list of requirements, tests, applications, and other procedures to minimize the difficulties associated with the naturalization process.

The Requirements & Advantages of Citizenship

In order to qualify for citizenship, you must meet a few requirements:

  • Must be at least 18 years old (unless adopted by a U.S. citizen)
  • Can claim to be a lawful resident of the United States for a minimum of five years
  • Can demonstrate a solid understanding of the U.S. government and its history
  • Able to speak, read, and write English
  • Have good moral character and a favorable disposition towards the United States

The advantages of citizenship make undertaking the difficult process of naturalization worthwhile. These advantages include the freedom to travel freely to other countries, the ability to sponsor other relatives living abroad to come to the US, and the ability to vote in elections. Citizens also have the freedom to seek out more job opportunities.
