benefits, and answer questions.

  • Can petition for more categories of family members from abroad to join them in the United States,
  • Can travel abroad for extended periods of time without consequences to U.S. citizenship status,
  • Can have their permanent resident children under 18 years old automatically derive citizenship,
  • Are safe from deportation and removal,
  • Receive certain preferential tax treatment,
  • Can apply for public benefits like SSI,
  • And so much more.

You may be eligible for naturalization if you have been a permanent resident for five years, or, just three years if you are also married to a U.S. citizen.
