      Apply For U.S. Citizenship

      To become a U.S. citizen, you must first complete and file an application for citizenship (Form N-400) with the USCIS. The immigration attorneys at Ervin Kibria PLLC will work with you to complete Form N-400 with step by step guidance.

      Once your application is approved, you will be scheduled to take the U.S. citizenship test and interview. Once you pass, you will attend a Naturalization Ceremony where you will take the Oath of Allegiance and officially become a U.S. citizen.

      The attorneys at Ervin Kibria PLLC have extensive experience in filing successful citizenship applications.  During our initial consultation, we will gladly walk you through the process of filing the petition and then applying for permanent residence and help develop a clear strategy on how to achieve a successful result in your case.

      What are the requirements for citizenship?

      There are five basic requirements to become a U.S. citizen, a process called naturalization. These requirements are:

      1. Be at least 18 years old
      2. Have a green card for 5 years (3 if married to a U.S. citizen)
      3. Have lived continuously in the U.S. for the past 5 years
      4. Have been physically present in the U.S. for the past 30 months
      5. Meet the good moral character requirement

      Is it possible to get U.S. citizenship if you do not meet one of these requirements?

      While 90 percent of U.S. citizenship applicants meet the basic requirements, there are special circumstances that could make you eligible. People who have served in the U.S. military or are relatives of those who have served might be able to apply for citizenship without meeting some of the physical presence or residence requirements.

      What is Form N-400?

      The application for U.S. citizenship is the USCIS Form N-400, Application for Naturalization. Completing this application and filing it with the government (along with supporting documents) is the first part of the naturalization process. Once your application is approved, you will be scheduled for the citizenship test and interview, and then take the Citizenship Oath.

      What is the citizenship test & interview?

      After your application for U.S. citizenship is approved, you will be scheduled for a citizenship test and interview. The citizenship test is two part: English language (speaking, reading, writing) and U.S. history and civics. The interview is a series of simple questions, many of which you may have already answered on your application.

      How long does it take to become a U.S. citizen?

      In most cases, it takes about six months to become a citizen from the time you file your application with the USCIS. However, there is always the possibility of the process taking longer due to backlogs in applications or other delays. The sooner you speak to an immigration attorney at Ervin Kibria PLLC, the sooner we can begin the processing of applying for your U.S. citizenship.
