Is U.S. citizenship your primary goal?

On Behalf of | Apr 17, 2024 | Citizenship |

Many people come to Florida every year through visa programs that allow them to temporarily live, work or study in the United States. Many want to stay here permanently for various reasons, such as marrying a U.S. citizen. Among those who want to spend the rest of their lives living in this country, some have an even bigger goal in mind — to become naturalized U.S. citizens.  

If this is a primary goal of yours, you’ll want to make sure you meet the eligibility requirements for citizenship. These requirements include living in the United States for three or five consecutive years, depending on whether you’re married or single. If you file a citizenship application, you must live in this country from the date you apply until you take the oath of citizenship. You must also demonstrate good moral character and be able to pass several tests regarding topics such as U.S. history, civics and English. 

Application errors cause U.S. citizenship delays or denials 

The naturalization process is complex, and it is critical to avoid errors. Even a seemingly minor error might raise a red flag with government officials. This can lead to a delay or denial regarding your request to become a U.S. citizen. Relying on outside support can help you avoid mistakes and achieve your goal without legal complications.
