Citizenship

People born outside of the United States can become U.S. citizens in a number of ways, ranging from birth and adoption to the specialized legal process called naturalization. FindLaw's Citizenship section covers the basics of the citizenship process and what it means to be a citizen, what to expect when taking the citizenship test, and in-depth information about the naturalization process. Articles include a sampling of typical citizenship examination questions, a primer on dual citizenship, naturalization requirements, and more.
