US Citizenship & Naturalization

If you or a family member wants to follow the process of becoming a United States citizen or national, there is a formal process you can follow to do so. Usually, everyone born in the United States or born to a parent with US citizenship is automatically afforded rights of citizenship. Naturalization is the process by which US citizenship is granted to a foreign citizen or national, meaning someone who is not a US citizen, after that person fulfills the US government requirements for citizenship. Those requirements include lawful residency for five years or more in the United States, amongst others. To gain citizenship or naturalization, seek out the advice of a Court Buddy immigration attorney.
