Citizenship Attorney in Fort Myers

Become a U.S. Citizen

The most common path to U.S. citizenship allows a green card holder (permanent resident) of at least five years (three years if married to a U.S. citizen) to apply for naturalization.

At Hurtado Immigration Law Firm, we are passionate about helping clients become U.S. citizens. An immigrant himself, Attorney Pablo Hurtado knows first-hand the joy of obtaining U.S. citizenship. We encourage all those eligible for citizenship to apply as soon as possible.

We would be honored to help you seek citizenship. Call us at (239) 800-0580 to get started.

The Naturalization Process

Most green card holders will become citizens through the process of naturalization. Eligible LPRs must meet a variety of requirements in order to become citizens.

To apply for naturalization, you must:

  • Be 18 or older at the time of filing
  • Be a green card holder for at least five years immediately preceding the date of filing the Form N-400, Application for Naturalization
  • Have continuous residence in the United States as a green card holder for at least five years immediately preceding the date of filing the application
  • Be physically present in the United States for at least 30 months out of the five years immediately preceding the date of filing the application
  • Reside continuously within the United States from the date of application for naturalization up to the time of naturalization
  • Be able to read, write, and speak English and have knowledge and an understanding of U.S. history and government (civics)
  • Be a person of good moral character, attached to the principles of the Constitution of the United States, and well-disposed to the good order and happiness of the United States during all relevant periods under the law

There are other ways to become a U.S. citizen that are available in some very specific circumstances. Our team is happy to assess your situation and determine which avenue is right for you.
