green card to citizenship question

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hello folks, i a newbie here. i just removed conditions on my green card and would be filing my citizenship in about 2-3 years. what is the process to do that? can you only apply after you have been on green card for 5 exact years. How long does it take? What type of documentation should i save over these years to produce at the citizenship interview?

hi and welcome to VJ!

Are you still married to your USC spouse? If yes, then you can apply after 3 years of being LPR and not 5. Please read the naturalization guide and get familiar with it; a lot of information in it (Link: http://www.uscis.gov/files/article/M-476.pdf)

The process varies depending on your location but normally 4-6 months.

Yes, Do i need the same kind of approval that i needed for removing conditions?

Do i have to wait for 3 years to end to apply?
