Becoming A U.S. Citizen: Get The Assistance You Need

A citizen of the United States is a rare and important person. They have voting rights and privileges that other groups do not have. More than that, citizenship is a mark of permanency that cannot go away.

At my firm, Edwin R. Rubin, Attorney at Law, I have a long history of providing my clients with the insight and representation they need to become citizens. I have helped many people in East Brunswick and across New Jersey secure their citizenship through my advocacy and attention to detail. If you believe you want to take this step, I can help you.

Requirements For Citizenship

It is a highly sought-after prize for many, but it isn’t an easy process. There are several options available to spouses or children of current U.S. citizens, but not everyone is in that position. To become a citizen of the United States, you have to meet several stringent requirements, including:

  • You must be a lawful permanent resident.
  • You must be of “good moral character.”
  • You must be a resident for at least five years.
  • You must not have left the country in the last five years.
  • You must read and write English.
  • You must have a strong grasp of U.S. history and government.

Possibly the most difficult of the factors above is the “good moral character.” It is not to say that you might not have this quality, but the definition as set down by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) can be exacting.
