hello everyone,I am 3 years married already and just 1 year living in USA. I will have to file my adjustment status application in april of 2012 for my CR1 residency. I am wondering when I would be able to file a citizenship application since I read before that I can file it once I have 2.9 month married or 2.9 months since I first came to USA. Please give me a hand if I should start my citizen process . Thanks

You have to be a legal resident of the USA for 3 years before you can apply. The date you go by is on your green card.

You are NOT filing adjustment of status you are filing removal of conditions. Go look at the guides and read up on what you need to do.

No, you cannot start citizenship. You need to have been a permanent resident "greencard holder" for 3 years if you are married to a USC to be eligible. Why are you not filing your Adjustment of Status application now. Do you mean you Removal of Conditions?

Has the rule changed! Are you removing the 2 years of conditional Green card stay and mentioning the 3 years of unconditional green card stay.

I could become a citizen only after 5 years of green card status, in 2007.

I read up on this on the USCIS website. 2 years to remove conditions. 3 years for citizenship if married to USC. 5 years for citizenship if got a green card some other way.

well I made a mistake when I though was adjustment status, but the terminology is removal my condition of conditional resident, BUT i read since I am married to an american I can apply to the citizentship when I will be 3 years as a resident (2 of conditional and 1 of permanent )what I would like to know it is if I can start the citizenship process at the 2.9 since they always said you can start 3 months before, did anyone did it already?

Has the rule changed! Are you removing the 2 years of conditional Green card stay and mentioning the 3 years of unconditional green card stay.

Were you married to an american ?

You can file 90 days before you the date on which you will have been a permanent resident for 3 years. If you are applying to Remove conditions in April 2012, it sounds like you will file for Citizenship in April 2013, though I don't know the exact dates on your Greencard. Pay attention to the "resident since" spot.
