Naturalization and U.S. Citizenship

Do not lose the opportunity to become a U.S. Citizen. You can lose your Legal Permanent Resident status just due to committing certain misdemeanors or spending too much time outside of the U.S. If you obtained your green card through your current U.S. Citizen spouse, you may be eligible to apply for citizenship 90 days before your third year as a Legal Resident. If you became a resident through other means, you may be eligible to apply 90 days before your fifth year as a Legal Resident.

Other special circumstances affecting eligibility for U.S. citizenship may apply to your case as well, for example, if you are a U.S. Military Service Member. Also, some people automatically acquire citizenship through their parents and may file for a Certificate of Citizenship rather than Naturalization. This includes some children born abroad to U.S. citizens and, in certain circumstances, children whose parents naturalized before the children turned 18 years of age.

However, the laws that govern eligibility for citizen are more complicated than one would think. So, do not trust your case to people who are unauthorized to practice law, who do not understand immigration laws, and who seek to take advantage of you. Seek the advice of an experienced attorney who will provide individualized assistance.
