Work With Us to Become a United States Citizen
Becoming a United States citizen is an incredibly important decision. A US citizen can hold public office, vote, remain outside of the country for extended periods of time, and petition for their foreign relatives. One of the most important aspects of becoming a US citizen is that they generally cannot be denied entry or be removed from the country.
There are also many intangible reasons a person seeks to become a citizen, as well. No matter the reason, obtaining citizenship is an important goal that needs to be handled carefully. While citizenship requirements might seem simple, the process can get complex.
Depending upon the individual’s situation, there are a few different ways a person can obtain citizenship. Our legal team at Somos Immigration Law is here to help.

Applying for Citizenship in the United States
There are a few requirements a person will need to meet to apply for citizenship. They include:
- Continuous residence in the United States for five (or three years) depending on the case
- Lawful admission as a permanent resident
- Good moral character for the five years (or three) before their application
- Support the Constitution’s values and principles
- Speak, write, and read English (with some limited exceptions)
- Pass a civics test
A person can apply for US citizenship three months before their five-year period is completed. They’ll need to be interviewed and fingerprinted.
What Does Lawful Admission for Permanent Residence Mean?
US law states that a citizenship applicant needs to have legally obtained permanent residence. This is an area where an experienced immigration lawyer can help as USCIS specifically looks to ensure that the applicant legally received lawful permanent resident status at the time of the application.
