Naturalization is the process by which an individual may becomes a Citizen of the United States. Generally, a permanent resident of the United States (green card holder) can become a United States Citizen five years after receiving his green card.


If an Immigrant received his or her legal permanent resident through marriage to an United States citizen, and the Immigrant is still married to and living with the same United States citizen, then the Immigrant is eligible to file for naturalization three months prior to the third year anniversary of obtaining his or her first legal permanent resident card. If the Immigrant is no longer married to the United States citizen, then the Immigrant is eligible to file for naturalization three months prior to the fifth year anniversary of obtaining his or her first legal permanent resident card.


The process also includes an interview during which a brief test is administered. The test is short and generally not difficult. You can obtain study materials prior to your interview to prepare for the test. In some instances, the individual can request exemption from taking the test. There are several other requirements involved in the naturalization process.
