NATURALIZATION: A COMPLEX AND REWARDING PROCESS
Are you considering applying for United States citizenship? The attentive and thorough lawyers of Birdsall Obear & Associates can help you turn your dream into reality. We represent Wisconsin individuals, couples, and families in a wide range of immigration matters, including naturalization and citizenship.
United States Citizenship Requirements
There are exceptions, but the following are generally the criteria that must be met before becoming a U.S. citizen. You must be:
- At least 18 years old
- A lawful permanent resident (green card)
- A permanent resident for at least five years
- Physically present in the United States for at least 30 months (single) or 18 months (married)
- Able to demonstrate that you have lived at your current residence for at least three months
We can examine your situation and help you determine if you meet the criteria for becoming a U.S. citizen. If so, we can help you navigate the process smoothly.
It may be possible to expedite the residency requirement for naturalization due to your military service or if you are the spouse of a U.S. citizen working abroad in a field that benefits U.S. trade. We can help you determine if you qualify and, if yes, get the ball rolling on your background investigations and other requirements.
