naturalization, Chicago naturalization attorneys, lawful permanent resident, Certificate of Naturalization, U.S. immigration lawMany immigrants come to the United States and never decide to become citizens, instead preferring lawful permanent resident (LPR) status or any other nonimmigrant visa. However, many do decide to take the proverbial leap, but remain confused at times about what naturalization requires. Refreshing one’s memory can be helpful.

Requirements to File

Before one begins the process, it is a good idea to ensure that he or she is even eligible to do so. A person is generally eligible to naturalize if he or she is over the age of 18, has good moral character (no convictions for aggravated felonies), and has been a permanent resident for at least 5 years, or 3 if he or she is married to a U.S. citizen.

Chicago naturalization attorneys, naturalization, Certificate of Naturalization, undocumented immigrants, citizenship applicationsDuring 2017, many different experts saw fit to comment on an unusual trend— documented immigrants, such as green card holders, were becoming U.S. citizens at much higher rates than normal. This is a noteworthy trend for many different reasons—for many immigrants, full citizenship is simply not necessary for the aims they wish to carry out within the United States. For example, one does not have to be a citizen to work in the U.S., nor to study.

Another reason to comment on the citizenship trend is that obtaining full citizenship is actually difficult for many and takes quite a long time, contrary to popular perception and misinformation propagated by those not in the know.

should-i-naturalize-Illinois.jpgIt is quite common in this day and age for foreign nationals to live in the United States for long periods of time without naturalizing their citizenship, primarily for professional and financial reasons. However, for the average person, many simply do not realize the benefits that come with becoming a U.S. citizen. If you have the choice before you regarding whether or not to naturalize, it is very important that you know the positives and negatives both before making any decisions.


One might imagine that many advantages of becoming a U.S. citizen are self-evident, especially if one has business interests in the country. Citizenship is the only way to entirely avoid the spectre of deportation, as even lawful permanent residents (LPRs, or ‘green card’ holders) are susceptible to being deported if they are found guilty of certain crimes. Citizenship may be taken away, but there is a very specific, narrow set of circumstances that would need to occur for one’s naturalization to be revoked. Also, a citizen does not have to assiduously maintain a residency in the country; if he or she wishes to spend time abroad, he or she may do so without facing any kind of immigration penalty upon his or her return.

The process of becoming a U.S. citizen is called naturalization, and it is long and difficult. Because of this, it is important to know the steps you will have to go through before you can take the Oath of Allegiance, and to be able to fix any problems along the way.


The most important part is to know whether you are eligible to become a U.S. citizen, and if not, to possibly take steps to become eligible. In order to be eligible, you must:
