USA Citizenship

Become a citizen of the United States. Why? Once you become a citizen, you get the privilege to vote in elections. You’ll have better access to healthcare, and you no longer have to worry about getting deported (although some exceptions apply).

What does it take to be a citizen?:

  • You speak English.
  • You’ve been an LPR (Legal Permanent Resident) for three years and are married to the citizen who petitioned you.
  • You’ve been an LPR for 5 years.
  • You’re able to pass a civics and history test on the United States.

What if I was convicted of a crime?

  • Consult with an attorney to see if this will affect you.

What if I owe child support or taxes?

  • Depending on the amount owed, you may not qualify
  • Consult with an attorney.

What if I don’t speak English?

  • If you’ve been an LPR for over 15 to 20 years and are over the age of 50, you may qualify to take the civics exam and have the interview in your native language.
