How to preserve the right to a US citizenship. Basic barriers

In order to get civil rights, a person must be naturalized. Naturalization is a legal process that the Green Card holder goes through to become a US citizen, provided that the requirements imposed by the State are met.

 The process is relatively easy for:

One should say straight away that it’s always easier for children. So long as you are born in the States, you become a US citizen automatically. But if you’re not that lucky, there are other ways as well.

The process is relatively easy for businessmen, as regular investors in the country’s economy are given preferential terms. You can also marry an American citizen, and obtain the nationality in 3 years, instead of 5 years under the regular procedure.

All individuals, except for children, shall be fully in line with the social and legal requirements of the United States, since to gain the right to citizenship is much more complicated than to lose it. Next, we will consider the main obstacles in obtaining the right to citizenship and you can easily avoid them.

  Potential obstacles to obtaining citizenship:

  • You should not have priors; previous conviction is a reason for refusal.
  • Conduct financial fraud and engage in dishonest economic game
  • To apply illegal methods for obtaining citizenship: Americans are very scrupulous in this regard.
  • To live a long time outside the U.S. with a Green card at hand. You should stay in the country for 2.5 years out of 5 years, or 1.5 years out of 3 years.
  • Support the ideology of hostile countries. If you are an active Communist, a member of Baader Meinhof or al-Qaeda, you will not be granted citizenship.
  • Move around frequently. You should live at least 3 months in the state where you applied for citizenship.
  • Loose moral character, drugs, excessive drinking.
  • Evasion of taxes and alimony payments.
  • Divorce from the US citizen you’ve been married to (as long as you are planning to be naturalized in 3 years).

    As you can see, to retain the right to citizenship is not difficult. Be proud of impeccable moral integrity, respect the laws and constitutional provisions, play fair and nothing will preclude you from US naturalization.
