    It depends on whether you got your green card based on employment or marriage.

    Employment 5 year

    Marriage 3 years

    Of course with both I believe you can submit the petitions for citizenship 3 mo early

    *Being* in the US does not confer privilege or eligibility. Having LPR status for 5 years or 3 years, if married to a US citizen, does.
    The above is simply an opinion. Your mileage may vary. For immigration issues, please consult an immigration attorney.

    Mobis: I doubt that you will be eligible for citizenship, given your issues with the criminal-justice system. It appears from one of your previous posts that you have been referred to court for domestic violence.

    Furthermore, I believe that you are currently a conditional resident. You can apply for citizenship three years, less ninety days, from the date that you were awarded conditional status. However, if you are called for your citizenship interview before your application to remove conditions has been adjudicated, both will be conducted simultaneously. You cannot become a citizen before you are a permanent resident.

    In any event, I believe that your court-ordered anger-management classes - as a result of a domestic violence situation - will mean that your application for citizenship will be denied.

    Also, aren't you planning your divorce at this very moment?

    You cannot become a citizen before you are a permanent resident.
    This is a little misleading. Conditional permanent residence is LPR.
    The above is simply an opinion. Your mileage may vary. For immigration issues, please consult an immigration attorney.

    No, conditional residence is not LPR. Once the restrictions on residency have been successfully removed, the time spent as a conditional resident is considered to be as a permanent resident.

    A person who is a conditional resident cannot become a citizen before being awarded permanent residency status...in other words, until the conditions on residency have been removed.

    I disagree. Conditional residency IS legal permanent residency = LPR. That an alien has a requirement to remove conditions prior to naturalization I agree, but that neither suggests that the residency is not legal nor permanent.
    The above is simply an opinion. Your mileage may vary. For immigration issues, please consult an immigration attorney.

    SunDevil, stop who told you that someone with midsemeanor can be granted citizenship? Well, it all depends on the offence, you heard me. i know i didn't hit my wife, the police didn't even want to arrest me, but commonwealth state sent them back. But let me get back to the subject. when it is punge out, b/4 the end of this year there won't be any problem. that is for sure. i already call an immigration lawyer. A friend of my wife, he told me even with a misdemeanor, there be only a few question ask, B/c misdemean is nothing. Plus i might end up back with my wife. it's just ...the trust is not there anymore. And the only way a man can divorce his wife is when she commits adultry. i might or might not file for divorce. it's up to God.
