Naturalization Question - Citizenship Eligibility Question

Recommended Posts


I got my greencard thru my husband  in September 2016 who is an US Citizen,  and I have applied for my extension to remove the conditional on the greencard which i got notice from USCIS saying its approved for next 18 months. Now since the processing time for reissuing the Greencard is approximately 18 to 23 Months.  

When will I be eligible to apply for US Citizenship, do i need the resissued greencard to apply for Naturalization or how does that work. Any info is greatly appreciated.

You need proof of the removal of conditions. 

"As a permanent resident, you should have received a green card. This card will continue to prove that you have a right to live and work in the United States permanently. If you file Form I-751 on time, we will extend your conditional resident status until a decision has been made on your application. You will be sent a notice reflecting this."

The 3 years for naturalization still apply. You will get a positive decision much sooner than 24 months.

You can apply 3 years after becoming an LPR provided you continue to live in marital union to the USC spouse. 

Whose account is this? The husband is claimed as a USC here, but wife's a USC in another thread 2 years ago.  Why the discrepancy!
