Can DCF conflict with UK Passport App??

My wife and I have been married living together in the U.K for the past three years, she is a US citizen I am a UK citizen.

Our aim is to get my wife a UK passport and myself a green card so that we can live together in either country without this visa hassle.

My wife is eligible to apply for UK citizenship and is about to do so, apparently it can take 6-9 months to be approved and to obtain a UK passport.

We were wondering if we could start the ball rolling with my green card application at the same time as applying for UK citizenship for my wife or would there be a problem if we did that? We aim to do DCF as we have been here so long I think we are eligible?

Our aim, ideally is to be in America within the next year, do you think this is possible?

Thanks for your help.

Your wife's application for UK citizenship should have no impact on your green card application.

I think the opposite is true too. Those applying for UK citizenship based on 5 years residency must also intend to continue residing in the UK, but for those who are applying as the spouse of a UK citizen this is not listed as a requirement. Plenty of people apply for the UK citizenship just before moving back to America. She might even be able to attend a citizenship ceremony in the US rather than the UK. However, I am not sure enough of myself on this whole issue to outright advise you to publicise your plans to move back to the US whilst applying for UK citizenship. There isn't really a reason why it should come up though. Hopefully someone who has experienced this can tell us if it is absolutely fine to be open about moving away from the UK :-)

Keep in mind the US green card is not a 'Permanent Visa'. If you show a pattern of not actually living in the US, the green card is subject to seizure.

My UK Passport application has been processed in about 6 weeks. Don't know who told you 9 months!

The OP meant they needed to apply for UK citizenship first :-)

Ahhh! I see. Well in that case I recommend doing the document check through your local council as my UK citizenship was processed in 1 month!! (And I'm in London, which I would think would be slower due to high volume)

Good luck!
