If you decide to apply to become a U.S. citizen, you will need to certain requirements either at birth or after birth.

At birth, you must:

Have been born in the United States or certain territories or outlying possessions of the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction of the United States; OR
had a parent or parents who were citizens at the time of your birth (if you were born abroad) and meet other requirements

After birth, you must:

Apply for “derived” or “acquired” citizenship through parents
Apply for naturalization

You may also qualify to obtain your citizenship through Military Services.

Most naturalization applicants are required to take a test on English and Civics (U.S. history and government); and they must show good moral character.

Members and veterans of the U.S. armed forces and their dependents may be eligible for special naturalization provisions.

NOTE: There are quite a few requirements, exceptions for different cases. Therefore, consulting your immigration attorney is crucial to ensure the opportunity to become a U.S. citizen won’t be jeopardized.
