Greencard to Citizenship Requirements For All Applicants

Naturalization is the process of becoming a U.S. citizen. If you were born outside of the United States but meet specific requirements, you can become a U.S. citizen.

Whether or not you can become a naturalized U.S. citizen will depend on if you meet the following criteria:

  • Be a minimum of 18 years old when you apply
  • Be a lawful permanent resident for the past three or five years (depending on the circumstances)
  • Have continuous residence & be physically present in the U.S.
  • Have the ability to read, write and speak English on a fundamental level
  • Show that you have good moral character
  • Have knowledge and an understanding of U.S. history and government
  • Be loyal to the principles of the U.S. Constitution
  • Have the willingness to take the Oath of Allegiance

If you don't see your particular situation or want more detailed information and exceptions, including special provisions for those who have served in the U.S. military, we can still help.

Contact a Maryland citizenship attorney at Zenith Law Firm as soon as possible. We will walk you through the naturalization process step-by-step.

What Should I Expect During The Naturalization Process?

The following steps can help you get started on the naturalization process. If you're unsure what steps to take, Our Maryland naturalization and immigration law specialists are here to help.

Take the following steps to ensure you're on the right path to naturalization:

  • Review the naturalization eligibility requirements to help you decide if you are eligible to apply for naturalization
  • Complete Form N-400, the application for naturalization, with all of the necessary photos and documentation
  • Submit your forms, pay the required fees, and check your status online
  • Attend your biometrics appointment (if required)
  • Complete your interview and don't forget to bring your appointment notice
  • Receive your notice of Granted, Continued, or Denied status from the USCIS
  • Attend your naturalization ceremony
  • Take the oath of allegiance and officially become a U.S. citizen

Once you become a citizen, it's essential to understand precisely what that means. Your immigration lawyer can help you learn all the rights and responsibilities that all citizens, both Americans by birth and by choice, can exercise, honor, and respect.

How Long Does The Naturalization Process Take in Maryland?

Generally, the naturalization process is the same regardless of the state from which you apply. It takes 120 days from the day of your naturalization interview for the USCIS to make a decision. If the USCIS officer takes longer than 120 days, your MD citizenship attorney can ask a district court to review your application.

How Long Does It Take to Get U.S. Citizenship After Applying?

On average, the processing time for naturalization applications is 14.5 months. However, that's the application processing wait time, and the naturalization process usually takes longer. Speak with a U.S. citizenship attorney about how long your process could take and how they can assist.
