Immigration is the process by which foreign citizens come into a country for purposes of establishing a permanent residence.

What is "naturalization"?
Naturalization is the process by which U.S. citizenship is conferred upon a foreign citizen or national after the foreign citizen fulfills the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

Some of the requirements for naturalization are:

  • a period of continuous residence in the U.S.;
  • an ability to read, write and speak English;
  • knowledge of U.S. history and government;
  • good moral character;
  • favorable disposition to the U.S.

How do children who are adopted internationally become citizens? Children who are adopted internationally can become citizens in two main ways. The easiest way for a child to gain citizenship is for a U.S. citizen to adopt an orphan who automatically becomes eligible to enter the United States as an immediate relative. The second method to gain citizenship for a child is to adopt a child and reside with that child for two years prior to petitioning for the child.

How do I become a lawful permanent resident of the U.S.?
In most cases, an individual must have USCIS approve an immigrant petition which is most often filed by a relative or employer. After the petition is approved, an immigrant visa number is assigned.

After an immigant visa number has been assigned, an individual already in the U.S. can apply to adjust to permanent resident status.

Immigration is very complex and you should always consult with an immigration lawyer prior to initiating the immigration process.
