Change jobs before applying for Citizenship via N-400

Recommended Posts

This question has been discussed earlier in this forum, but I wanted to revisit this based on present circumstances and immigration scenario.  I am a US permanent resident from Oct 2016 and I am working in the same company which sponsored my green card.  Can I change my job (not a layoff scenario) without affecting the requirements for naturalization, for example, good moral character ?  Is this still a subjective case - OR - has anyone changed jobs right before applying for US Citizenship through N-400 ?

Generally the consensus is staying for at least 6 months. But if you got a career advancement elsewhere or more money elsewhere, you are certainly able to leave. One caveat is to discuss specifics with a lawyer to cover your back as it where. Remember very few workers stay for ever nowadays.

No problem at all given that you have worked for the company that sponsored your GC for over 2 years after getting the GC.
