Green Card will expire soon, what is next?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I read through a couple of posts, but I am still not completely certain what my next steps are.

My Green Card was issued on 06/06/2015 and therefore will be expiring 06/06/2017 (I came to the US via a K1 visa).

The impression I got from reading the information provided on the USCIS website, as well as some posts here, is that I have to file for removal of conditions within 90 days prior to the expiration, so sometime after March 6th.

Do I file for naturalization at the same time, or will I have to wait for the removal of conditions first?

Something that confuses me is that it states that one has to be a resident for at least 5, or in my case 3 years. But I by the time my green card expires it will obviously only have been 2 years.

Thank you!

You have to roc them you get another green card for 10 years I believe. Once your married to a USC for 3 years you can apply for citizenship

Keep in mind that if you are planning to apply for naturalization and want to keep your German citizenship, you need to apply for and (be approved for) "Beibehaltungsgenehmigung" BEFORE obtaining US citizenship. Otherwise, by naturalizing in the US, you'll automatically lose your German citizenship.
