When I get a call about a green card renewal, I often ask the client why not just go for full citizenship? Believe it or not, many people simply are not interested in becoming a citizen. Many will tell you that they don't mind coming back every 10 years and renewing their green card, but there are a lot of good reasons why it's better to go ahead and file that N-400 and become a citizen.

One thing to remember before you run out and file your N-400 Citizenship Application though, always check with an experienced immigration lawyer like Cardinal Immigration, a West Virginia immigration law firm. There are numerous steps that must be met before one can be eligible for citizenship. Nevertheless, if you qualify, I strongly recommend skipping the renewal process and getting your US Citizenship and all of the benefits and rights that go along with it.
