Most people seeking to go through the naturalization process for U.S. citizenship are required to have spent at least 30 months in the country during the previous five years. However, this can work against spouses of U.S. citizens who are living abroad due to military service or a job with an American company. These applicants can take advantage of the expedited naturalization process, which enables certain applicants to complete the necessary steps without meeting the ordinary residency requirements.
