What are the Benefits of U.S. Citizenship?

United States citizenship offers a variety of rights and benefits. Citizenship allows you to pursue employment opportunities, vote in U.S. elections, and even sponsor other family members who wish to become citizens in the future.

Top advantages to being a U.S. citizen and why people choose to apply:

  • They are protected from deportation.
  • They can travel with no restrictions.
  • They can work government jobs and are eligible for benefits.

What are the Requirements for U.S. Citizenship?

In order to achieve your goal, you must meet all legal requirements to apply for citizenship.

The requirements for applying for citizenship include being:

  • At least 18 years old
  • A lawful permanent U.S. resident
  • Living in the country as a lawful permanent resident for 5 years
  • Living in the state where you file your application for 3 months or longer
  • In the United States from the date of your application until you have become a citizen

In addition to meeting the above requirements for applying for citizenship, you must meet other legal requirements. This includes passing an examination of basic understanding of reading and writing English and U.S. government history. You may also be asked to show proof of good moral character to be granted citizenship. Our citizenship and naturalization attorney in Phoenix can guide you through the process and make sure all legal requirements are met.

U.S. Citizenship Test

When applying for naturalization, there are several steps involved in completing your application. One of these steps is a naturalization test, which tests your ability to speak, write and read from the English language. Your knowledge of U.S. history and government will be tested as well. Here’s what you should expect from these examinations:

Is There a Language Requirement for U.S. Citizenship?

The English proficiency test is meant to demonstrate that, without too much difficulty or a language barrier you are able to participate in the economic and social aspects of life in the U.S.

The test has three parts: speaking, reading and writing:

Speaking: The officer conducting the interview will test your ability to speak by asking you questions about yourself.

Reading: Your reading abilities may be tested by the officer asking you to read out loud certain sections of Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, which you should be bringing with you to the interview.

Writing: During your interview you could be asked to write one or two simple sentences.

Though it is not a requirement that you are fluent in English, you must show that you without a struggle are proficient enough to interact with others. If this part of the test is of concern to you, an English as a Second Language course can help you gain confidence in the language and prepare you for your interview and exam.
