Up to 7 months even though current times are around 4 months mark.

I'm moving your topic to US Citizenship forum.

Depends on a ton of factors. Some take a few months and others a lot longer to years. It will depend on your case, depend on the IO, depend on your juristiction, depend on luck in the system etc. Average is a few months, but that doesn't always hold true and many people have found that out...

I think this thread should be closed - the OP was in search for info on how long does his co-sponsor have an obligation to I-864 and the citizenship came up. He's a long way from naturalization for his wife - not sure if they even completed AOS yet.

I'm trying to complete my AOS today. I asked about citizenship because my brother wants to know how long he might have to be a co-sponsor.

If I go back to the time when I asked my wife to marry me then we started all this immigration stuff I never even heard of, it took close to five years before she became a USCIS.

I agree with everything that had earlier been said. I applied for citizenship in February and had my interview in May. So it really depends though on many factors as said already. I am applying through marriage. Good luck. :dance:
