The Blessings Of Citizenship And Naturalization

Naturalization is the process of crossing over into U.S. citizenship. Every year, nearly a million foreign nationals complete this crossing. At Harrison-Donaldson, we take pride in guiding quality individuals through this process.

The basic requirements for obtaining naturalization are:

  • You must be at least 18.
  • You must have a green card, enjoying permanent resident status.
  • You must be physically present in the U.S.
  • You must have been continuously present.
  • You must be able to show good moral character.
  • You must have solid knowledge of U.S. history and the principles of our Constitution.

The benefits of citizenship are well worth the effort you put into the naturalization process. You will enjoy the full rights and protections under the Constitution. You cannot be deported. You may sponsor the immigration of loved ones. You can hold a U.S. passport. You will be eligible for benefits such as Social Security. You may even run for public office — with the exception of the presidency.

Naturalization is a gauntlet you must pass through to enjoy these blessings. Our experience tells us that it is a matter of enormous pride and joy to study for citizenship, and to be welcomed as a citizen.
