Thread: applying for citizenship...time line?

  1. #1
    I have a question,I might know the answer but just for those who have more experience and knowledge about citizenship application etc...

    I am officially permanent resident since
    dec-2004. Now when can I apply for my citizenship at the earliest time.I know its 5 years,so when in 2009 can I start sending my application out as soon as possible...

    and what can I do,to speed up my application?
    what happens after my application has been sent?
    whats next? biometrics again? fingerprints? when is the citizen test due from the time i sent the application in,approx?
    and how do you find out when the official ceromony is,for citizenship?

    I'd appriciate answers from those who went through this,or know exactly how it works.

    and what is currently the appliation fee for N400

    Did not you get your Green card through marriage to US Citizen? If you did and still married to the same US Citizen you can apply for Citizenship based on three years rule. You have to be Permanent Resident for 3 years. 90 days before your third unniversary you can send N-400. Good luck with new fees.

    Wow,someone actually replied
    thanks, but no.I was married,not anymore thats why the 5 year rule applies for me.

    I assume either everyone who got their citizenship isn't a member anymore,and thats why no ones replying,or no is able to answer my "complicated" questions I asked lol..

    In most cases it's 4yrs and 9ms since the date of obtaining LPR status (depends on how did one qualify for LPR status, through employment or marriage to USC or other).

    You can search for and find many threads Re: N-400 processing, on this forum as well as on many others.

    Good luck
