How can a spouse of a U.S. citizen become naturalized?

Spouses of United States citizens living in Georgia or any other state may also apply to become citizens themselves. Individuals must also have resided in the jurisdiction for three months prior to filing the application for naturalization. Spouses of United States citizens working overseas who have been overseas for at least one year may be eligible for naturalization.

This is true as long as they meet all the requirements of naturalization except for those from which they are exempted. For example, they do not have to be married to a citizen for any specific length of time prior to applying for citizenship. Applicants have to have held a green card for at least three years and have been in a valid marriage during that period. Additionally, the requirement for spending time in the United States before making a request for citizenship doesn't apply.

Anyone who applies for citizenship in the United States must be able to read and write in English. They must also have a basic understanding of American history as well as the U.S. government. Those who apply must also be of good moral character as well as be willing to follow the Constitution of the United States at all times.

Becoming a United States citizen is a multi-step process that must be adhered to at all times. With the assistance of an immigration and naturalization attorney, it may be possible for an application for citizenship to be accepted. The attorney may also be able to answer any questions that the hearing officers may have as well as establish that an applicant is of good moral character.
