When Can You Apply for Naturalization?

In order to apply to be a naturalized U.S. citizen, you must have held your green card in good standing for at least five consecutive years. Once the five-year period has passed, you will be eligible to apply* assuming that you have met all of the other requirements as well.

Who Can Get Naturalized?

As described by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), there are several different requirements that applicants must meet to be eligible to receive American citizenship through naturalization. Specifically, these requirements include the following*:

  • Current residence in the United States;
  • At least five years with a valid green card;
  • English language proficiency;
  • U.S. history and civics knowledge;
  • Commitment to the U.S. Constitution; and
  • Proof of good moral character.

What is the Process for Naturalization?

The process for naturalization can be complex, confusing, and at times, overwhelming. Even if you are certain that you meet all of the requirements for naturalization, you still need to be sure that you are very careful in navigating your way through the application process. The first step that you need to complete is to submit Form N-400, Application for Naturalization. In essence, this is your official application. This application must be completed without any errors, and even a seemingly minor mistake can lead to major problems. From there, you will also be required to:

  • Give your fingerprints;
  • Undergo a criminal background check;
  • Pass the English language test;
  • Pass the American government and civics test; and

Go through an interview with an immigration official from USCIS. Only when all of these steps are completed can you become an American citizen. Our Buffalo Grove naturalization lawyers can help you with all aspects of your application, ensuring that you can overcome any unexpected obstacles.
