  • Can I apply for Citizenship?

    I got my Green card in May'2019 after my permanent resident wife applied for me. My wife got citizenship in October 2019. should I wait 5 years to apply for my citizenship or I can apply when my wife's citizenship will be 3 years?

    You can apply under the 3-year rule 3 years after your wife became a citizen (so October 2022).

    This is my personal opinion and is not to be construed as legal advice.

      Thanks for the reply. Are you sure about that?

        Yes. You qualify for naturalization under the 3-year rule when you have been a permanent resident for 3 years (can file 90 days before that), you have been married to the same person for at least 3 years, and your spouse has been a citizen for at least 3 years. For you, the last condition to be met is your spouse becoming a citizen for 3 years.

        Of course, you can also wait until 90 days before you have been a permanent resident for 5 years (February 2024) to apply under the 5-year rule if you want.

        This is my personal opinion and is not to be construed as legal advice.
