Eligibility for dependents

Recommended Posts

I have received green card in 2015 august, my son and wife received green cards in 2016 March. I will become eligible to apply for naturalization next year May 2020.

Can my dependents spouse and son will be eligible to apply for naturalization at the same time. 

Thank you

Your wife has to apply on her own, with her own eligibility requirements. Minor children usually become citizens when at least one of their parents becomes a citizen.

No. They can only apply for naturalization after they have been permanent residents for 5 years. If your son is under 18, he can't apply for naturalization until he turns 18, but if you become a citizen before he turns 18, he automatically becomes a citizen without doing anything.
