Becoming A U.S. Citizen

People around the world see the United States as the land of opportunity. However, taking advantage of these opportunities may require citizenship — legal resident status may not be enough. At the Yale Law Group, we can help you seek citizenship through the process of naturalization and secure the rights and benefits available only to U.S. citizens.

Our Denton, Texas, firm helps individuals throughout the country seek citizenship through naturalization.

Naturalization Criteria

If you were not born in the United States or to a parent who is a U.S. citizen, you can seek citizenship through the process of naturalization. To become a naturalized citizen, you must meet certain criteria:

  • Your entry to the U.S. must have been lawful.
  • You must be a legal resident (have a green card) and live in the U.S. for a set amount of time.
  • You must be at least 18 years old.
  • You may be required to speak, read and write English.
  • You must pass the citizenship test.
  • You must have good moral character.

If you are the relative, spouse or fiancé of a U.S. citizen, streamlined procedures may be available.
