Thread: When can I apply for my US Citizenship? Please Help.

  1. #1
    Hello Friends,
    I just had a quick question about US Citizenship. I am an Indian citizen married to a US citizen (I received my green card (permanent residency through marriage to a US citizen). Now I know I will be eligible to apply for my US citizenship sometime this year. I am just not sure when. I would like to get your opinion and advice. I became a green card holder on 08/05/05 and my card expires 08/23/15. Me and my wife were married on 06/29/02. We were living in Philly (that is where I got my green card) for almost 3.6 years and we recently moved to Northern Virginia on May1st 2008. Can you please advise me when can I apply for my citizenship? I know it almost takes 2 years here is Virginia so the earlier I start the better. Thank you so much in advance.

    Ps Since becoming a permanent resident of US I took some trips to visit my parents in India here are the dates.

    If you are still married to and in a viable marriage with the US citizen spouse, you became eligible to apply on 5/5/08, provided that you have resided in the PA district for 3 months.

    Hello swissnut,
    Thank you so much for your response. YES I am married to the same USC for more then 6 years now. By the way I moved from PA to VA so YES I have resided for almost 4 months now in my new address. I was just worried it is not 6 months. Once again thank you so much for your response. Great. Thanks.

    Hello MakeItRight,
    Thank you so much for your response. YES I am from India. Love your logo I love Sherlock Holmes too (Only Jeremy Brett he is the best) Once again thank you so much for your response.

    Hello SAMMY,
    Thank you so much for your response. Glad to know you noticed. Hey more eyes on a case is better then few if you know what I mean. With the response from everyone regarding my case/posting I am confident now to apply for my US Citizenship. I was mostly worried about the 3 or 6 month residency requirement since I have a new address. But now I am ready to file. Once again thank you so much for your response.
