Obtained Permanent Residency, How Long Should I Wait to Apply for Citizenship?

“The wait times to apply for citizenship vary from individual to individual. It depends on how one obtained permanent residency. For example, if one obtained permanent residency through marriage to a U.S. citizen, it has remained in a marital union with that U.S. citizen for three years and has also maintained their lawful permanent residency status for three years, they may apply under the three-year rule. In fact, one can apply 90 days prior to the third year anniversary of having obtained the permanent residency card. Normally, most people have to file and wait five years after having obtained lawful permanent residency. Again, one is allowed to apply 90 days prior to the fifth year anniversary of having obtained their lawful permanent residence.”
