“Naturalization” is the process for obtaining U.S. Citizenship. The purpose of this article is to provide the big picture of the Naturalization process. Note that the description below is a generalized discussion of the process and requirements. For every rule, there are exceptions and clarifications. This article provides a starting-point for determining whether you may be eligible for filing a Naturalization application.

The benefits of U.S. Citizenship are many, including:
1) You cannot be deported if you are U.S. Citizen, unless you obtained citizenship by fraud.
