Naturalization (U.S. Citizenship)

Naturalization (U.S. Citizenship)

Naturalization results in permanent US citizenship. Citizenship can never be taken away after you’ve earned it, meaning you can never be deported or placed into removal proceedings. Naturalized citizens can legally vote and enjoy all of the rights and responsibilities of US citizens.

By all definitions, after going through naturalization you are a US citizen. Your path might have been different, but the end result is the same.

Who is eligible for Naturalization?

Although the naturalization process might seem daunting, its requirements are actually quite simple. To be eligible, you must:

  • Be a resident of the US for the last 5 years, or 3 years if you’re married to a US citizen
  • Have lived in the US for at least 6 months out of the last 5 (or 3) years you were a resident
  • Have no criminal history for the previous 5 (or 3) years of residency

Because every case is different, be sure to consult with your immigration attorney to make sure you or your spouse meet the requirements for naturalization. If you’re not sure, better to ask beforehand!

How can Monument Immigration help with Naturalization?

Monument’s immigration lawyers will help you gather all of the necessary information and documentation, let you know exactly what’s needed to apply, and quickly prepare your application for submission to the government.

In most case, we’ll be able to submit your application for processing within 48 hours of receiving your information and documentation.

In addition, we’ll make sure you’re 100% prepared for your naturalization interview to give you the best odds of success in obtaining your US citizenship.

How long does Naturalization take?

After the government receives your application, it usually takes about 6 months to be processed.

Why should I apply for Naturalization?

Naturalization is forever. Citizenship can never be taken away from you, and offers the peace of mind and permanence that a Green Card or visa just can’t match.

Naturalized citizens can receive a US passport, are eligible to vote, and are entitled to all the same benefits afforded to other citizens.

How much does a Naturalization consultation cost?

We charge flat rate of $2500 for naturalization consultations and filing your application. We believe that money shouldn’t stand in the way of you chasing the American Dream, which is why we offer simple, zero-interest payment plans to our clients.

And if you decide to pay in full instead of setting up a payment plan, we’ll take 10% off our usual rates.

Besides Monument’s fees, bear in mind that the government charges $725 for its naturalization filing fee.
