In the fall of 2019, we began to see processing times for naturalization applications in San Antonio drop dramatically. Recently, those applications have been filed, processed, and approved within 6 months – and some in as few as four months! If this continues, then eligible applicants could  apply in January and February of this year and have their citizenship in time to register and vote in the 2020 elections!

To be eligible for naturalization, you must: 1) Have been a Lawful Permanent Resident for five years (or three years if you’re married to a U.S. citizen); 2) Have been in the United States for at least half the time you have been a resident; 3) speak, read, and write English (unless you’re over 50 and have been a resident for at least 15 years – or qualify for another type of exception); 4) learn U.S. history, civics, and government; and 5) be a person of good moral character.

If you need an assessment of your eligibility for citizenship, please call us at (512) 633-1785 or email us at [email protected] and we’ll be happy to help you. We want all of our clients to become U.S. citizens and VOTE!
