US Immigration Bonds has been in the business of issuing bonds for family members and loved ones. If you are lucky enough to have received a green card or a visa and are now on your way to applying for naturalization, then there are a few things that you need to know before you get started. This guide is a brief overview of the US citizenship test we hope applicants find helpful.

The U.S. Citizenship test is an extremely important stepping stone to becoming a United States citizen. The test is separated into 4 distinct parts or sections; each section focusing on a different and important function of citizenship. In order to be eligible for Naturalization, you must take a U.S. citizenship test. Since the expert, nationwide immigration bail bonds specialists want you to be as prepared as possible for Naturalization, eligibility for the test is based on a few other important factors.

  1. The applicant must be 18 years or older.
  2. Must have been a permanent resident or green card holder for at least 5 years.
  3. Been in the United States physically for 30 months of the 5-year period.
  4. Have good moral character
  5. Ability to read, write and speak English
  6. Knowledge of the United States civics and government

The last two on the list comprise the US citizenship test.

Speaking Test - You will be graded by a USCIS officer during the speaking portion of the test. The officer will ask you questions during what’s called the naturalization eligibility interview. The applicant is graded on natural English ability.

Reading Test - The applicant must read aloud, one sentence of three that is given to him or her. The USCIS officer then determines if the applicants reading ability is satisfactory.

Writing Test - In this section of the US citizenship test, the applicant must write one out of three sentences in a manner the demonstrates to the USCIS officer that he or she at least a minimal proficiency in writing.

Civics - This is probably the most difficult part of the test. Applicants are tested on their knowledge of United States civics, government and history. A pool of a possible 100 questions is drafted and can be found on the USCIS government website. Out of the 100 possible questions, 10 are select at random and the applicant must answer at least 6 out of the 10 correct to pass the civics portion of the test.

Only the civics and speaking test can be retaken if the applicant fails. The applicant is given one more opportunity to take each in a period of 60 to 90 days after the initial test. US Immigration Bond recommends taking the time to study for the test. As mentioned before, there are resources online at the USCIS government website. All over the web there are more free resources and videos that can be easily access.

US immigration bonds were absolutely the best they were super professional. When I was down and out when my husband was detained by immigration they were very caring , knowledgeable, and patient. I called them a thousand times and they were very empathic and helpful everytime I called. they reassures me that everything would be fine, and that they would help me my husband, and my children be reunited again. They did everything they could to get me a same day release. They exceeded my expectations. I would not recommend any company other than US immigration bonds. Us immigration bonds, under promises and over fulfills. They were a true blessing ! Thank you so much more

Jeremy Wolf and his agency have been a terrific resource for me as I delve into this foreign world of bonding a friend out of jail so he and his wife can work on his case on the "outside." Jeremy has been unfailingly polite and informative and his video regarding how to complete the necessary forms was a valuable tool too. The entire process was quick and relatively easy. I especially appreciated not having to deal with a jaded, impatient, figure--it-out-yourself kind of person when I was treading in really unfamiliar territory. My questions were always answered quickly and efficiently.I highly recommend this company in your time of need for quick, efficient and professional service with no attitude or more

Jeremy Wolf, is compassionate and understanding. He has been there and done it with his own family, and together with his wife they dedicate their time and energy into helping other families come together. I know this because my husband was taken by ICE and his bond was set much higher than I could have imagined, having in my hands at any given time. ... With Jeremy, his wife and the rest of the team we were able to piece together the required 80% and set up a affordable and convient payment plan. It was a grueling process, at times I felt like I was going to loose all my hair, as I ran around selling homemade tamales, and had various other fund raisers going on, along with my husband being detained, I lost my home, my dog and my daughter and I pushed forward with the help and support of Jeremy and his team, if It wasn't for there hours of help and dedication, to put a previous bond for my nephew into action to help my husband, we wouldn't have been able to have him home for the Holidays. ... To Jeremy, Veronica, and Amber, who I spoke with often, and the other parts of the team who I was unable to catch their names, I THANK YOU, FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!read more
