So in a few years I would like to move from Belfast,Northern Ireland to the US, I want to go to univertsity here and once I'm finished and have gotten my degree (and saved money) I would like to move to the US. I also know I want to do something to do with law enforcement, so to work in the US I have to become an American citzen. How long does it take to apply to become an American citzen, how long does it take to actually become a citzen and would they let me become a citzen if my father was in jail (before I was born). Also would it be better to become a police officer here, then transfer to the US or just start from scratch in America. So detailed comments are appreciated, actually any coment is! :D

To move from northern ireland to the united states you have limited options.

1) A direct family member could sponsor you, but it takes a long time (if you had a brother who was an american citizen it would take 9-10 years)

2) A US company proves that no one has your skills and offers to sponsor you. (Given what you said that is not an option)

3) Win the green card lottery, being from northern ireland you can apply each year.

You would need a green card and be in the US for 5 years before you could apply to become a US Citizen and after that you could apply to the police acadamy.

But you need the green card first.

You would first have to be sponsored by an immediate relative who is a US Citizen or permanent US resident, or by a US-based employer.

You would then be a Permanent Resident, five years after which you can apply for US Citizenship.

You can also obtain Permenent Residence if you are a medical doctor, hold a doctorate degree in a specialized field of study, are able to invest at least $500,000 to start a business in the USA, or are a person of special skill or talent and world renown, such as an author, artist, performing artist, athlete, or scientist.

Your father's incarceration is irrelevant, unless he was involved in a criminal enterprise with which you were associated.

Your options are pretty much limited.Police officers are in demand but considering the amount of US citizens already available it is quite unlikely you can become one here.You would require a minimum of a green card in any state and local state or federal police do not sponsor immigrants to the US.

In your case, marriage to a US citizen seems to be the only way you can immigrate here. Your spouse would then have to petition for you to get a green card. It takes 3 years to apply for citizenship with a green card through marriage, and 5 years with a green card through the diversity lottery. Good luck.
