Our Legal Focus
Deportation / Removal
Let Us Help You Become an American Citizen
Under American law, if you have been a lawful permanent resident (with a green card) for at least five years, you can apply to go through the naturalization process and become a citizen. Once you have been naturalized as a citizen, you cannot be subject to deportation or removal, even if you are charged with a crime. In addition, as an American citizen, you can:
- Travel internationally under a U.S. passport
- Apply for a green card for relatives
- Be eligible for benefits through the federal government
- Work within the federal government
- Vote in federal elections
- Run for federal office
As an American citizen, your children will also automatically become American citizens, even if they are born abroad.
