Citizenship Attorney in Houston, TX

Criteria You Must Meet to Become a U.S. Citizen

Obtaining a green card can be a very complicated process, and it can be difficult to navigate these immigration matters alone. Hiring an experienced Houston citizenship lawyer can be extremely beneficial, as your lawyer can ensure that you meet all of the criteria and that you have all the necessary paperwork and documentation.

There are several requirements for naturalization that must be met, which include:

  • You must have held a green card for at least 5 years
  • You must be at least 18 years old
  • You must have maintained at least 5 years of continuous residence in the U.S.
  • You must pass a test which determines your ability to read, write and speak English and a test on basic U.S. history and government facts
  • You must furnish proof that you are person of good moral character
  • You must affirm that you are willing to support "the good order and happiness of the United States" and the principles of the Constitution

What are the benefits of being a U.S. citizen?

If you are able to become a U.S. citizen you will be able to vote in elections, run for most types of elected offices, apply for employment by the Federal Government, obtain a U.S. passport and freely come and go out of our country. Another significant advantage of obtaining citizenship is that you will be able to help your loved ones immigrate to the United States more easily. Your living situation is much more secure when you obtain legal citizenship, allowing you to start a new life right away.
