Naturalization & Citizenship
Becoming a U.S. Citizen through Naturalization
For many Americans becoming a United States citizen is effortless and automatic at birth. However for immigrants, becoming a U.S. citizen– and therefore obtaining the right to legally reside in the United States, travel to and from the country, gain the right to vote, and be protected under the Constitution — can be a long and difficult process. But one way foreign nationals can gain full citizenship is through naturalization.
Requirements for Naturalization
Naturalization is a process immigrants may undertake to become lawful United States Citizens. Generally to qualify, immigrants must meet the following naturalization requirements:
- Be 18 years or older
- Be a permanent lawful resident of the United States
- Be a person of good moral character
- Have a basic understanding of the English Language
- Have a basic knowledge of U.S. history and government
- Have maintained a consistent residence for the past 5 years

Our Cleveland immigration lawyers engage in detailed one-on-one conversations to get acquainted with the circumstances regarding your particular case and we have a long history of helping immigrants on the path to citizenship.
