Confused about GC Status/Citizenship Eligibility

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: AOS (apr) Country: Hong Kong
Timeline

My family received GC a month ago (My father GC category is E18, multinational manager and mine is E10, Child of a priority worker classified as E11, E16, E12, E17, E13, or E18).

I want to know if my father decides to give up his GC status in the future, will it affect my GC status?

I plan to apply for citizenship 5 years later, will they need me to present any of my father's document or anything from the company that sponsored his GC? What happens if my father is no longer a GC holder when I apply for the citizenship, will they deny my petition because of that? Or I should ask does my GC status depend on my father's status?

Thanks.

You have a ten-year green card, right? I think your green card is permanent even if your dad gives up his. However, if your father gives up his green card and leaves the U.S., and takes you with him, you will have abandoned your residency here and you may be deemed to abandon the green card.

Are you turning 18 within five years? You have to be 18 to file for naturalization.
