People who are citizens of the United States and didn’t have to go through an application process to obtain it really don’t understand just what a privilege they have. There are millions of good people in other countries who would love to become U.S. citizens, but simply don’t have the resources to obtain it, or they are overlooked during the process of trying to get citizenship.
U.S. Citizenship is an amazing asset. It gives you the right to vote, and the ability to run for office in the U.S. You can obtain a U.S. passport, allowing you to travel to myriad countries. You can get state and federal benefits as a U.S. citizen, and you can even support family members who are trying to get citizenship themselves.
People who live outside of the United States but are pushing for citizenship in the U.S. have a tough road ahead of them, but citizenship is attainable. There are a number of rules and regulations that must be followed, and you can read about a number of them here.
Ultimately though, if there is one way to ensure that you are going about the citizenship process the right way — and to optimize your chances of obtaining citizenship — you should consult with an experienced immigration attorney.
