U.S. Citizenship and Naturalization

Becoming a U.S. citizen is the most important step for many immigrants. There are several different ways to get become a U.S. citizen, depending on your circumstances.

Some people may acquire citizenship at birth by being born in the United States. For those born outside the U.S., it may be possible to become a citizen if a parent was a U.S. citizen when they were born.

In other cases, the path to citizenship is naturalization. In this case, a U.S. permanent resident needs to file a naturalization application with the USCIS. If the application is approved, (s)he may be naturalized.

A U.S. citizen can:

  • Vote in state and federal elections
  • Travel with a U.S. passport
  • Run for elective office
  • Serve on a jury
  • Obtain state/federal benefits
  • Obtain citizenship for children
  • File for a fiancé petition for a non-citizen
