The Law Office of Joel Friedman represents
individuals who are applying for U.S. citizenship. Lawful permanent residents can
become U.S. citizens after 5 years if they are otherwise eligible. That time may be
shortened to 3 years for persons who were granted permanent residence based upon
marriage. Special rules apply to active-duty military personnel.
There are many eligibility factors to become a U.S. citizen.
For instance, a permanent resident generally must have a least 5 years of "good moral
character." Most applicants for U.S. citizenship must pass an English and civics
examination. Some exceptions apply.
