Forgive me am not sure where to put this post. Anyway this is my wife’s account and she’s been busy with school so I’ve just decided to work on my ROC and possibly citizenship. 
 

we got married in feb 2017 so I will be filling for my ROC in the middle of February. And by that time we would have been married for 3 years. Can I apply for citizenship even though am still gonna have to file for my ROC right around the same time. 
Thankx y’all.

You must be legally married to your USC spouse and live in the US for 3 year period, from date of admission, whilst being present within the US for at least 1,5 years of the 3 year span to be applicable for naturalization. The marriage date has no effect on your naturalization process, it’s only a deciding factor in CR or IR visa classification.
 

You MUST file for Removal of Conditions before your conditional LPR card expires!


You can file for Naturalization after 3 years of residency even if your ROC application hasn’t been adjudicated yet.

2 issues ... Applications for citizenship can be made while ROC is in progress .... but .. the 3 year mark for being eligible for citizenship is 3 years from your GC date , not 3 years from date of marriage.. so you have another 12 months or so before you can file your N400. When that time comes , you can file the N400 even if the ROC has not been completed.

Thank you guys. That is very clear. Note I just have to figure out how to start the ROC process. 

Download the i-751 and the accompanying instructions. Read both through carefully.

You are the petitioner, but a lot of material you find makes it look like a joint petition.   Your wife will definitely have to participate in this process.
