In general, a noncitizen may apply for naturalization five years after becoming a lawful permanent resident (LPR), provided the LPR meets the physical presence, good moral character, and literacy requirements. There are, however, situations in which different rules apply. Our speakers will discuss various special circumstances where clients may apply for naturalization or a certificate of citizenship outside standard naturalization procedures.
