CITIZENSHIP INFORMATION
Permanent residents are not required to become U.S. citizens and may live in the U.S. under such status so long as they renew their status periodically as indicated on their green card. In many cases, permanent residents do not apply for U.S. citizenship due to the required forfeiture of their foreign citizenship.

If you are not a U.S. citizen by birthright and you wish to become a U.S. citizen, you may have the option to naturalize into U.S. citizenship. Naturalization is the process in which a foreign citizen or national receives U.S. citizenship after he completes the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). The most common path to U.S. citizenship is where a green card holder (permanent resident) of at least 5 years applies for naturalization. Other paths include permanent residents who marry U.S. citizens, permanent residents who are in the military (and their family) and children who obtain citizenship through parents.

Below you will find general information and issues regarding citizenship and adoption of foreign children into U.S. citizen status. Before applying for citizenship, it would be best to discuss your options with an attorney to ensure that you are aware of the effects of obtaining U.S. citizenship.

I would like to learn about U.S. citizenship.
