The Differences between Citizenship & Naturalization Certificates

Although both documents are used to demonstrate citizenship, there is a difference in the process. U.S. citizenship certificates are given to individuals who are born outside the United States but attain citizenship through their U.S. citizen parents. Naturalization is granted when a person born in a foreign county goes through the naturalization process.

The Naturalization Process

Naturalization is a legal process that allows a citizen of a foreign country to obtain citizenship in the United States. Prior to filing for naturalization, the person seeking citizenship must be a legal permanent resident and meet specific eligibility requirements. Legal permanent residents must be at least 18 years old and reside in the U.S. as a permanent resident for at least five years. The law allows shorter waiting periods for some legal permanent residents, including those living with U.S. resident spouses and members of the military.

To become a United States citizen, you must:

  • File the application (Form N-400)
  • Appear for an interview
  • Take English and civics tests
  • Take the Oath of Allegiance to America

Citizenship grants individuals various rights, including the right to vote, and obtain a U.S. passport. Our citizenship and naturalization lawyer in Carlsbad works to help clients achieve their immigration goals. We evaluate each situation to recommend the best course of action to help you reach your goal of becoming a naturalized U.S. citizen.

We encourage you to call (442) 200-5011 to have your questions answered in a consultation.
