N-400 Application for Naturalization: Your Path to Becoming a U.S. Citizen

Welcome to the “N-400 Application for Naturalization” page at The Ahluwalia Firm . If you are a lawful permanent resident (green card holder) and are ready to take the next step toward U.S. citizenship, the N-400 application for naturalization is a critical milestone in your immigration journey. Our team of experienced immigration attorneys specializes in assisting individuals in navigating the N-400 application process and achieving their dream of becoming U.S. citizens.

Four Ways to Become a United States Citizen

There are four primary ways individuals can become United States citizens:

  1. Birth in the U.S.: Anyone born in the U.S. and subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. is a U.S. citizen.
  2. Acquisition of Citizenship: Anyone born in another country to parents who are U.S. citizens may become a U.S. citizen at birth through acquisition of citizenship.
  3. Naturalization: Anyone who is a lawful permanent resident of the U.S. and meets the naturalization eligibility requirements may become a U.S. citizen through naturalization.
  4. Derivation of Citizenship: Individuals who are lawful permanent residents and whose parents have naturalized may become U.S. citizens through derivation of citizenship.


The naturalization process involves several eligibility requirements, including:

  • Being a lawful permanent resident of the U.S.
  • Being at least eighteen years old
  • Demonstrating good moral character
  • Ability to speak, read, and write English
  • Passing a test on U.S. history and government
  • Establishing a home in the U.S. for at least five years (or three years for spouses of U.S. citizens)
  • Meeting physical presence requirements in the U.S.

Exceptions to the Above Requirements

There are exceptions to the general requirements for naturalization. These exceptions apply to individuals in “Special Categories,” such as:

Spouses of United States Citizens: Spouses of U.S. citizens may have reduced residence and physical presence requirements.

Children of United States Citizens: Minor unmarried children may derive U.S. citizenship through their parents.

Individuals Who Served in United States Armed Forces: Some individuals with military service may be eligible for naturalization.

Waiver to the English Language Requirement: Certain applicants, such as those with disabilities or elderly applicants, may be exempt from the English language requirement but must still fulfill the U.S. history and government requirement.

The naturalization process involves different sets of forms, documents, and procedural rules, and it can be complex. Our team at The Ahluwalia Firm is here to assist you in navigating this journey successfully.

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.
