Naturalization is the process in which a Lawful Permanent Resident becomes a citizen of the United States.  There are various requirements a green card holder must meet in order to be eligible for naturalization, including:

  • at least five (5) years of Lawful Permanent Residence (exceptions available to Lawful Permanent Residents who adjusted status through a U.S. Citizen spouse or Lawful Permanent Residents serving in the U.S. Military);
  • physical presence in the United States for the majority of every year in which Lawful Permanent Resident held; 
  • good moral character (arrests and/or convictions may disqualify certain applicants);
  • the ability to speak, read, and write the English language;
  • passage of the U.S. History and Civics Examination administered by USCIS at interview.
