Additionally, this site provides information about the benefits of becoming a United States Citizen, naturalization requirements, the process of naturalization, as well as information about if and when you should seek legal help during this process.
We answer some frequently asked questions regarding this process and provide study materials for the civics exam portion of the naturalization process.
