Factors to consider along the path to citizenship

When you arrived in Florida from another country of origin, you likely shared many of the same hopes and dreams that thousands of immigrants have had when they started new lives in the United States. Perhaps one of your greatest goals is to seek citizenship. Although you may encounter various challenges throughout your journey, it is often possible to achieve such goals if you set up a strong support network of people well versed in the process who can guide you along the way.  

As with most immigration or status adjustment processes, there are eligibility requirements that must be fulfilled before a person can become a U.S. citizen. For instance, before you can seek citizenship, you have to reside in the U.S. for at least five years. If you are married to someone who is already a U.S. citizen, the required length of time is only three years.  

Once you apply for citizenship, you may not reside outside the United States until your citizenship is granted. You must also possess certain knowledge regarding U.S. history and government. You must demonstrate literacy and be a person of good moral character.  

Officials will test your ability to read, speak and write in English, although in some circumstances, an immigrant may take a citizenship examination in his or her own language. Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, P.A., can provide counsel and support to any immigrant in Florida who wishes to navigate a path to citizenship. Acting alongside our experienced legal team may help you avoid application errors and overcome any obstacles that arise as you work toward becoming a citizen of the United States.
