U.S. Citizenship

The most important reasons to apply for U.S. citizenship are eligibility to vote, obtain certain scholarships and federal jobs, and becoming a full-time participant in American society. Additionally, a U.S. citizen cannot be deported.
To be eligible for citizenship, you have to be:
  • at least 18 years of age or older;
  • a permanent resident (green card holder) for at least 5 years (3 years if married and living with U.S. citizen spouse) and actual physical presence in the U.S. for half of that time;
  • living within your state for at least 3 months prior to filing the application;
  • a person of good moral character; and
  • able to read, write, and speak basic English.

Two eligibility issues seem to cause the most concern for potential applicants: how much travel outside of the U.S. is permitted and the meaning of good moral character, especially in the context of any law violation. Our office provides consultations during which we review your immigration history to determine if you are eligible for citizenship and whether it is advisable to apply. We specialize in analyzing the complex set of immigration laws surrounding naturalization and citizenship and determining eligibility.

“Highly recommend him to anyone. Prior to Mr Ewusi two lawyers told me my case was impossible to fight. I would never get any status change nor positive results. However, He did the opposite, he fought for me. And I got the results I needed. His a great lawyer and advocate. He knows how to do his job.”
