Citizenship And Naturalization

At the Law Office of Carrie Nguyen, your American dream matters. We treat it like our own. Why? Because for us, it’s personal. Our entire team has been impacted by the immigration system. That is why we will fight to keep your American dream alive.


There are many benefits to becoming a U.S. citizen such as the right to vote, obtain a U.S. passport, and petition for other family members in obtaining their immigration benefits. When can you apply for citizenship?


  • 3 years if you obtained Legal Permanent Resident status through a U.S. citizen spouse; or
  • 5 years of Legal Permanent Resident status was through anyone else other than a U.S. citizen spouse.
  • The test is done in English, but there are language exceptions to those who have been Lawful Permanent Residents for over 15 years and meet certain age requirements.


It is crucial to consult with an attorney to see if you are eligible for citizenship. There have been cases where withholding or misinterpreting of information have resulted in a person being placed in deportation. It is important to have an attorney prepare not only the form, but yourself as well for the interview. Our experienced attorney will help make this process easier for you.
