I have a Greencard and will be eligible to apply for US citizenship on May 15 2019 and my wife is on H1B currently. Will I be able to apply for her greencard when filing for my citizenship or Should I file for my citizenship first and then apply for her GC once I get my citizenship. Please advise.

Tks,

Harish.

Why haven't you applied yet? You're eligible to do so today. Green Card holders can petition a spouse by filing the i130.

Just to give you a contrarian approach after reading the previous reply, the time frames for Naturalization have skyrocketed, and F2A seems standard at 2 years. You could file the I-130 now and later on decide whether adjusting status here or getting an Immigration visa is appropriate.

Would that mean that my wife will still be on her H1B status until I-485 IOS is filed though I file I130

Hi, 

I am in similar boat. In our case, I was permanent resident when I filed I-130 for my spouse. While pending, I became US citizen last year. Then, sent an update to I-130 and my spouse also filed for I-485. Then, I-30 got approved, spouse completed bio-metrics, all in October 2018. But, since then, no updates from USCIS or NVC.
