Citizenship Immigration

Becoming an American citizen is a dream for millions of people. Furthermore, it is a dream many can realize with the help of Luis Rondon Immigration Attorney Services.

Being a lawful permanent resident (green card holder) is outstanding. For many, a green card means they can live in the U.S. indefinitely, with many rights afforded to U.S. citizens.

Many, not all.

Citizenship Requirements

Citizenship is the final step in a long and complicated process to give lawful immigrants the full freedoms that embody what it means to truly be an American. There are three main pathways to U.S. citizenship.

  • Be born in the United States
  • Automatically receiving citizenship through a U.S. citizen parent
  • Naturalization


Now if you are reading this, chances are you are most interested in the process known as naturalization. Before you even begin this process, you must first be a green card holder. To satisfy the requirements for U.S. citizenship you must be at least 18 years old and have the following:

  • Five years as a green card holder (lawful permanent resident)
  • A basic understanding and knowledge of the English language as well as U.S. history
  • 30 months of physically living in the country

If you meet the above requirements you will then be expected to complete the necessary forms and filing fees with the Department of U.S. Immigration Service. Having a knowledgeable attorney in your corner during this delicate time is the single most important asset to you as a potential U.S. citizen.

We commit to scouring every word within your forms to ensure no errors. We help you to prepare your application to avoid potential delays. Most importantly, we prepare you for your citizenship interview.

Citizenship Interview

After you pass a background check, your citizenship interview will be scheduled. It is during this interview that an immigration officer will administer a basic English test and U.S. history test. As your immigration attorney, we are here to protect your rights and ensure your path to citizenship is fair and free of obstacles that you would otherwise have to face on your own.
