  • How long until u can apply for citizenship?

    Greetings! My husband received his permanent resident card in November of 2003. How long does he have to wait until he can apply for his citizenship? INS told us 3 years...is that really true?

      He can actually apply 2 years and 9 months after the date of becoming a permanent resident... is 3 years by law if the alien is married to a USC but USCIS allows the alien to apply 90 days prior to becoming 100% eligible therefore is 2 years and 9 months...

        Which means one can apply for citizenship while he/she is removing conditions and applying for I-751??? since the 2 years 9months period falls in that bracket.

            Janet in your case after 2 years you guys have to apply for I-751 to remove condition on your green card. Meanwhile after 2 years and 9 months you can file for citizenship even though you are waiting in a long queue of I-751. I-751 needs to be approved first then they will call for citizenship interview. Both process I-751 and N-400 can go concurrently. Good luck.
