Citizenship for Spouses of U.S. Citizens: Navigating the Path to U.S. Citizenship Together

Welcome to the “Citizenship for Spouses of U.S. Citizens” page at The Ahluwalia Firm. If you are the spouse of a U.S. citizen and are considering the journey to becoming a U.S. citizen yourself, you are not alone. Our team of experienced immigration attorneys specializes in assisting spouses of U.S. citizens in understanding and pursuing U.S. citizenship, uniting families as citizens of the United States.

The Path to U.S. Citizenship for Spouses

As the spouse of a U.S. citizen, you have a unique and streamlined path to U.S. citizenship. The process generally involves:

Becoming a Lawful Permanent Resident: If you are not already a lawful permanent resident (green card holder), you must first secure your green card through marriage to a U.S. citizen.

Establishing Marriage: Demonstrating the legitimacy of your marriage to a U.S. citizen is crucial. USCIS may interview you to determine the bona fide nature of your marriage.

Eligibility for Early Naturalization: As the spouse of a U.S. citizen, you may become eligible for early naturalization, which allows you to apply for U.S. citizenship after just three years as a green card holder.

Key Benefits of U.S. Citizenship for Spouses

Obtaining U.S. citizenship as the spouse of a U.S. citizen offers several significant advantages:

Permanent Legal Status: U.S. citizenship provides permanent legal status in the U.S., eliminating the need for green card renewals and protecting against deportation.

Full Civic Participation: Citizens have the right to vote in U.S. elections and actively participate in the democratic process.

Global Mobility: U.S. citizens can travel and live abroad without the risk of losing their U.S. citizenship.

Dear Mr. Ahluwalia, I would like to thank you for all your help with Dr. xxx case. She and I were very impressed with your services and the professionalism that you showed both of us.

I am forwarding your information for xxxx to contact you and make arrangements accordingly. Thank you for all your help.

Dr. F.

Inderjit, thank you so very much. I sincerely appreciate all the effort you took to get this approved and your incredible patience. As xxx mentioned, we will only work with you for all our future H1's. Thanks once again.


Inderjit handled our immigration matter in reference to my parents. We approached him and found him extremely pleasant to work with. In addition to his knowledge of the law, he guided us very well throughout the process. I would recommend him very strongly to anyone in matter of immigration.
