Hello All,

My wife's 5 year as permanent resident is November 10, 2010. We decided to take this avenue. Can you sent your application 2 to 3 months before November 10th.? I remember reading 3 months before the 3 year annivercity( married) people where sending there's in.

Thanks for the help and inputs.

Hi,

Yes - it is 90 days prior to the 5th year residence anniversary. So if Nov 10th is your 5th years residence anniversary, then 90 days will be Aug 12, 2010.

Hello guys. ok, my friend, this is my recommendation, I have just become US citizen 2 days ago. You can apply exactly when she is on 4 years 9 months counting them from her green card date; however, I recommend you do it exactly at 4 years 10 months; this is the reason: the process in average is taking around 95 days in an national average days. Hence, in case that She applies with 4 years 9 months, it is very possible that at the moment of the interview, she is NOT going to have the exactly 5 years; even more, there are cases where the person arrives to the inteview with 1 week, or even 1 day less of the 5 years, and the person has to wait that term for approval; the idea is that yes indeed you have to be at least 4 years 9 months, but at the same time, the person has to have at least 5 years exactly at the date of the interview. It happens right now since September of the last year everybody in avarage is having the interview around 2 months and a half from the moment of the 2 years 9 months; so, they, just a few, arrive to the interview with a few weeks or a few days before the exact term of 5 years. In my opinion, I recommend you very much, appy exactly at 4 years 10 months, so you are fine. In my case I applie at 2 years 11 months and 3 weeks, just it was missing me 1 week to the exact 3 years with my US citizen wife. I had the interview 2 months and a half later; if I would have applied at 2 years 9 months, maybe I would have had a little problem in my opinion. I recommend you again at exactly 4 years 10 months, so she is going to have (5 years and 2 weeks in my opinion) maybe 1 or 2 weeks or maybe 1 more months beyond the minimum 5 years at the date of the interview. Thanks and bye,

She COULD have gotten things rolling 2 years ago.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
