A: Thank you for your question. Here is my response:

You might be eligible for U.S. Citizenship. There are a lot of other factors to consider such as: how you received your green card; how much time you have spent outside the U.S.; your good moral character; and English speaking ability.

If you have questions about whether you qualify please contact my office for assistance.
