Your path to citizenship in Texas

It's no secret that it can be hard to get U.S. citizenship in Texas. The process can be long and complicated, and the U.S. government is very careful about who they allow to obtain citizenship. In the post-9/11 era, it is even harder than ever since so many strict rules are in place to protect the country.

However, this by no means indicates that you cannot get the citizenship that you want and doing so brings with it many benefits. To determine if you are eligible for citizenship, you should know that you may be able to get it if:

-- Your place of birth is a territory that is controlled by the United States.

-- At least one of your parents already qualified as a citizen when you were born.

-- You are married to someone who is a member of the U.S. military.

-- You have had a green card for the set amount of time, which is three years for those who have married U.S. citizens and five years for those who have not.

This list is not exhaustive, as there may be other things that could qualify you for citizenship, but it gives you an idea of some of the more common reasons that people seek this out. Even when you fit one of these criteria, though, that does not guarantee that you will be granted citizenship, so it is very important to understand the legal side of things before you apply.
