Do I start counting my eligibility years from when I because a conditional resident or permanent resident?

I received my green card as a conditional resident (because I hadn't been married for 2 years when I applied) in 2012. So I am eligible to get my citizenship 3year from then? OR, is it 3years from when my condition has been removed?

Thank you!

The resident since date on your GC is when you begin counting. That would be the date you entered the US with your CR1 visa. Time spent as a conditional resident counts towards the citizenship since conditional permanent residents have all of the same rights and privileges as a regular LPR.


This does not constitute legal advice.

Thank you!

A conditional LPR is a LPR. The only difference is that the conditional LPR's status expires when the 2 year GC expires and you must file for removal of conditions (ROC) using the I-485. A LPR with a 10 year GC applies for a new GC using the I-90 form and their status as a LPR does not expire when the GC expires. So you look at your GC and see what the resident since date is on the GC. Add 3 years to that date, which should be three years after you received your conditional GC, and you can apply 90 days before that date--assuming you remain married to your USC spouse.

Good luck,

Dave
