Naturalization for spouse without the primary holder


Recommended Posts

Thanks to for this wonderful forum and to experts like JoeF for providing all valuable inputs.


I came to US on L1. My spouse joined me in US after 6 months on L2, got her EAD and has been working in US since then. We have got our GCs in 2011 - I am the primary GC holder and my wife & my kids have got their GCs as my dependents. This year we are eligible to apply for our US citizenship. I am not very keen on taking the citizenship, but my wife is.


My question is - can my wife apply for US citizenship without me (primary GC holder)? Will there be any risk in doing so? If she can, I think my kids will automatically become US citizens and can apply for US passports along with my understanding correct?


Thanks in advance for all your inputs.
