Naturalization and Citizenship
At The Law Offices of Samuel S. Sorota, we take pride in providing effective
legal services to our clients.
United States boasts having a large number of immigrants who through their hard work, contribute towards making the U.S. a great country. For most immigrants who choose to live and work in the United States, becoming a U.S. citizen is often the ultimate goal.
One may automatically become a citizen of the United States at birth or under certain circumstances, may become a citizen after birth. To become a citizen after birth, you must either derive or acquire citizenship through your parents or you must apply for naturalization.
U.S. citizenship may be granted to a foreign national through a naturalization process. To apply for naturalization, the foreign national must meet certain requirements and make an application.
You may qualify for naturalization under any of the following circumstances:
- You are at least 18 years of age, have been a permanent resident for at least 5 years and have continuous residence in the United States for at least 5 years immediately preceding the date of filing the application.
- You are the spouse of a U.S. citizen, have been a green card holder for at least 3 years and living with your spouse during the time.
- You have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.
- You are the child of a U.S. citizen, born outside of the United States and reside outside the U.S.
