Methods Of Earning Citizenship
There are several ways that a person can gain citizenship, and it is important to know how each of them may apply to you:
- Automatic citizenship – Anyone who is born in this country is a citizen. The only exceptions to this would be when the parents of this child are heads of state in foreign nations.
- Applying for citizenship through naturalization – This method involves living here legally as a permanent resident for a period of time, and then applying for citizenship.
- Derivative citizenship after parental naturalization – If even one parent is a citizen, by birth or application, their children can also become citizens, provided they meet the requirements as well.
- Military service – If you are a lawful permanent citizen, you can serve in the U.S. Armed Forces, and then there are ways you can gain citizenship.
