N-400

The path to naturalization starts with filing the form N-400 by a lawful permanent resident. Applicants must attend a naturalization interview, during which time they are required to take English Language Proficiency, Civic and U.S. History tests. If the applicant demonstrates eligibility for naturalization including successful test results, the application will be approved. The immigration officer will notify the applicant of the date and time of their naturalization ceremony they will take their Oath of Allegiance to America. Finally, the applicant will be given a certificate of naturalization, which proves US citizenship. Children of U.S. Citizens may qualify to apply for citizenship by filing a form N-600.
