I have had a Card for about 15 years and now that the Brits

Hi there:I have had a Green Card for about 15 years and now that the Brits have voted to Leave the EU, I am seriously considering getting my US Citizenship.In order to help make that decision, I appreciate if you could help me in answering the following questions:1) I currently have a British passport. I am told that I can get US citizenship, and still keep my British passport. Is this correct?2) During the past 2 years I have been spending a lot of time outside the US (more than 6 months over the course of the year, while I have been building up a new business). However, I still reside in the US, am married to a US citizen, and have a US child (plus 2 other children from a previous marriage to a US citizen). All my income is generated in the United States, through a business that I own, US based. I file annual taxes in the US and am fully paid up. Is the fact that I have been spending more than 6 months per annum the past few years an issue with now getting my US citizenship?3) I am currently in France, although I am returning to the US next week for a while (and hence the timing of this question). Do I need to be in the US in order to file for my US citizenship? Or can I file for citizenship at a US embassy or consulate in Europe?4) Once I have filed (either in US or overseas) can I travel as much as I like in and out of the United States? Are there any travel restrictions? Obviously, I will have my British passport to travel on.5) Must I file my application in person, or can I mail it in?6) How long does the application process take?7) Do I have to take the test, or do anything else, in the same location where I file for my citizenship? Or can I take it / do it anywhere?8) Is there any benefit to hiring an attorney to help me through the process, or is this something a reasonably intelligent native English speaking person can do on their own?Thank you for your time!James

I am a Libyan citizen had my master's degree from a US

Hi,I am a Libyan citizen had my master's degree from a US university and currently in post-completion OPT status. I received my EAD which is valid until Jul 2017. My wife has a dual citizenship (Libyan and UK) and she got her Visa twice (the last one was in 2015) on the Libyan passport. Now she is going to apply again for the Visa in the UK but this time using the British passport instead of the Libyan passport for the first time. Does that might cause any issues with the Visa process?

My father was born in Minnesota, in 1910, and lived there

My father was born in Minnesota, in 1910, and lived there with his parents until they went to Saskatchewan, Canada when he was about five or six years old. He grew up there and always wanted to return to the US but life kept him in Canada until he died in 1987.My brother is an American citizen (having come here to work in the 1990's and subsequently obtained his American citizenship).I have a home in Phoenix where I spend four or five months a year but I would like to find out if I can claim American citizenship in the event that I would like to spend more time here than in Canada.
