How to Become a Naturalized U.S. Citizen
As an immigrant in the U.S., you do not have the same responsibilities
or benefits as a U.S. Citizen, born or naturalized. Once you are ready
to proceed with your application for naturalization, you need to be mindful
of certain responsibilities in order to read the benefits of this privilege.
In order to obtain U.S. Citizenship, you must have lived in the States
as a lawful permanent resident for at least five years prior to applying.
If you are the spouse of a U.S. Citizen who petitioned for you to be become
a Green Card holder, you will have to have resided in the U.S. for three
years. Of course, travels abroad can materially affect the outcome of
your application, not to mention the Immigration consequences of a criminal past.
