General US Citizenship Question

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All - I just got my permanent resident (green card). It says my card expires 09/26/22 and it says I've been a "Resident Since: 11/08/09". My husband is a US citizen so according to the information I've read I can apply for citizenship after 3 years of being a permanent resident. So this means that after 11/08/12 I can apply for my citizenship? Is this true?

Thanks!

You can apply (90) days before the 3 years mark since you became a resident. Your post is a bit confusing. Your card expires in September, yet you are a resident since November? Usually the month your card expires, is the same month you became a resident.

Probably because of removal of conditions. Getting a 10 year green card after the 2 year green card.

Since my wife and stepdaughter had to live for practically a full year with an expired conditional resident card and one year extension notice, the expiration dates are not consecutive. Its like they got to live here free for a practically a full year. The ten year cards had nothing to do with their resident since dates, ten year cards started when they were issued.

Only important date is that resident since date, for the OP, "Resident Since: 11/08/09", since today is 10/04/2012, can apply right now provided that she was married to her US husband prior to 11/08/2009 and has met the US residency requirement. You have got to live in the USA.

This would be the so-called marriage privilege requiring lots of proof you are happily married by paying taxes and bills together along with proof of living in the same residence. Proof you and your husband were free to marry, your marriage certificate, again, and that your husband is indeed a US citizen.

But if you wait another couple of years, and skip this one inch thick of additional evidence.
