GC renewal Vs Naturalization
Hi Guys,

I need some advice from some wise folks here.

Me and spouse have GC since 07/2010 which was based on EB2. Thought/Need of naturalization never occurred to us but now since we have a remaining GC validity of less than 9 months (07/2020), we are in fix. We are not sure if we start Naturalization process or renew our GC when we are within six months of expiry.

Based on the current processing time, we cannot get either before our GC expire. Our DL is also tied to the GC expiry date. Our employment status may be tied also.

Can somebody suggest what could be a better approach and what need to be done as we get close to GC expiry? Do we start naturalization now in Nov 2019 or start GC renewal in Jan 2020? Which has more probability of coming earlier, assuming things go smooth?

I am based in ATL and we do have a college bound USC kid, starting next fall so little worried about status.

Thanks in advance and will certainly appreciate your thoughts!
