Eligibility for applying

Recommended Posts

Hi

I received my i485 approval and expecting the green card soon. I am planning to take citizenship and settle here soon after I am eligible for applying citizenship. I have some questions, could anyone help me ?

  1. Is there any restrictions that I need to be with current employer for ‘n’ number of days? If yes how many. If no restrictions what is your advice on changing the employer ? does it impact my pathway to citizenship ?
  2. How long I should wait for applying citizenship ?
  3.

For a work sponsred GC, you must wait 5 years minus 90 days before applying.  The path to citizenship has many milestones.  Read the USCIS website.

You must have "settled" in the US as a LPR in order to qualify for citizenship.

Am I eligible for USA citizenship? Please see my situation

2) I received Green Card in Sep 2009 and joined in Green Card processed company "B" immediately
 

3) Worked 2 months for Green Card Sponsor Company then my project was ended.
 

4) I was not able to get the project for a while and took fulltime position with company "C" in Dec 2009 and still working there

 

5) I'm close to 5 years on LPR and I would like to apply citizenship?  I did not work at least 4 months before / after Green Card Spencer Company "B". Does it create any problems for my citizenship ?
