What is Naturalization?
Naturalization means that if specific requirements are met, an immigrant can be allowed citizenship into another country. What this means for you: if you qualify for naturalization in any of its categories, you may be able to achieve your citizenship sooner than planned.
Who Can Qualify for Naturalization & Citizenship?
There are typically three main requirements for those looking to go through the naturalization route of citizenship:
Be physically living within the United States for five years.
Have what is described as a “good, moral character.”
You typically need to be over the age of eighteen.
The Naturalization and Citizenship Process
When you meet all the qualifications for becoming a US Citizen, complete Form N-400 to apply. Once you submit your documents and fees to the USCIS, you will be required to do a background check before they schedule an interview. In this interview, expect to answer questions about your N-400 Form- mainly regarding the English and Civics tests. After your interview, the USCIS officer will determine if you need additional requirements or documents. If not, your application will be approved!
Pathways to Citizenship
Naturalization can be achieved in a few different ways. These are the most common pathways to qualify for:
Five years of residency within the US
Marriage to a US Citizen for at least three years
Challenges Faced by Warriors Seeking Naturalization
If you qualify, naturalization is a great way to obtain US citizenship, but you can’t ignore the obstacles you will inevitably face when striving to achieve your citizenship. For example, US citizenship can be denied for not speaking English, not being able to study for the history/civis test, not having enough physical presence in the United States, having gone back to your country of origin after applying for asylum, having divorced the spouse who gave you residency, failing to pay federal taxes, or owing unpaid child support, having criminal convictions or any other moral character issue can all be challenges that you might face.
