Very curious! I know what I read and understood here and on the goverments website concerning naturalization. I wanted to verify because someone I know is very adimant about them being correct about the details.

My husband is married to me an american citizen from Morocco so he only has to wait 3 years to apply from the date that he became a permanent resident correct?????? Not counting the time that he was here on his k-3 visa???

My husband's friend is married to a Moroccan born woman who is now a U.S citizen thru naturalization. Does he have to wait 3 years from his Permanent status or 5 years because his wife was not born here in the U.S???

I just want to make sure I understood correctly. We begin a new timeline from the moment we recieved our green card to apply for U.S citizen status don't we??

Thank you all for your help and any more info and advice that you have concerning what to prepare for in the future please feel free to let me know! take care all! Happy dayz ahead for all I hope! :)

No idea why you are bringing in another person's situation in your question...

Look at your husband's green card - you want to know the resident since date - to that date add three (3) yrs minus 90 days if still married to the same USC (yourself). If not, add 5 years.

Yes for the first one... 3 yrs since LPR.

as for second question, the USC spouse whom you received your LPR must be a USC for at least 3 yrs before spouse is eligible. N-400 app has a section on it. also lookup M-476 Naturalization guide....

fyi trying to help out and find more info for my husbands friend. I do like to help others! That was the reason for mentioning his friends situation with my question. Didn't think it would make sense to post 2 subjects that are so similiar.

thanks for the response.

"Normal" is 5 years.

Express (3 years) works only if the foreigner got his Green Card based on the marriage to a US citizen, the same person who petitioned for him, they are still happily married and still live together under one roof.

In plain English, if somebody got his Green Card for whatever reason, then shortly after marries a US citizen, that would not work as his marriage would not be related to him getting his Green Card through the same person.

You don't tell us whether that's the case with your friend; thus it's not possible to answer the question.


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.
