hi

90 days before your 3rd year of GC and marriage to a USC

3 years would be June 20th, 2014, so 90 days prior you can file for citizenship

Have a look at this guide for applying for naturalization. It is not just a matter of 3 years or 5 years as a LPR, but there are continuous residency requirements and physical presence requirements. Most LPR meet these, but there are those here on VJ that used the GC as a tourist visa instead of living in the US. Look over the guide to see what is required.

Ok guys , Just to clarify. Is it 90days prior to 3rd year Wedding Anniversary or Date on 10years GC anniversary?

@ Aleful, just want to make sure I understand you correctly. Anyone's advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

hi

since you were a resident on your 2 year GC. it doesn't matter that you are a conditional resident, the fact is you are a resident, and the 2 year card has a date that says resident since.....

that's the date to start counting from

So it is not from the day you get here?or the day you got married?

The date that matters in this calculation is the one on your green card next to "Resident since".

If you entered the US on certain types of visa, the date on which you entered the country and the date on which you became a permanent resident may be the same.

This is an AND condition. You must be married for 3 yeas to your USC spouse AND have been a LPR for the past 3 years. Obviously one of those will be longer than the other.
