Citizenship & Naturalization
If you are just beginning to explore the idea of naturalizing in America, be aware that it's not as easy or straightforward process. The requirements can seem overwhelming at first glance and many people delay seeking legal help because they aren't sure what steps need taken next; however if we all take our time this will only make things more difficult for ourselves!
In order to gain citizenship through naturalization, you must meet the following requirements:
5 or 3 years continues and physical Presence
In order to become a naturalized United States citizen, you must meet certain requirements. One of these is that you must have been a permanent resident for at least 5 years. Another requirement is that you must have been physically present in the United States for at least 30 months out of the last 5 years. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. If you have been a permanent resident for at least 3 years, you may be able to apply for naturalization without meeting the physical presence requirement. To learn more click on:

Good moral character can be proven through things like paying taxes, maintaining a job, and taking care of one's family.
