Benefits and Responsibilities of U.S. Citizenship.

To become a U.S. citizen, an individual must either be born in the United States, born abroad to U.S. citizens or nationals, or go through the naturalization process.

Naturalization Requirements:

The Immigration and Nationality Act lists the requirements an immigrant must meet in order to properly naturalize and become a U.S. citizen. First, there is a residency/physical presence requirement prior to filing a naturalization application. All naturalization applicants must have resided continuously after being lawfully admitted for permanent residence within the United States for a period of five years immediately preceding the date of filing his or her application of naturalization, and must have been physically present in the United States for periods totaling at least half that time during the five years immediately preceding the date of filing his or her naturalization application, and must have resided within the state or district of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) of the United States in which the applicant filed the naturalization application for at least three months. Second, there is a continuous residency requirement after the naturalization application has been filed. All naturalization applicants must have resided continuously within the United States from the date of application up to the time of admission to citizenship. Finally, the naturalization applicant must demonstrate that he or she is a person of good moral character.
