ABSTRACT
The article presents a question and its response related to the immigration law in the U.S. A reader reports that he received his green card in 2002 through employment and got married in 2004 to a U.S. citizen. He asks that how long he will have to wait to apply for his citizenship. He is informed about the rule which states that a person who is married to a U.S. citizen for 3 years and has held their green card for 3 years can apply for U.S. citizenship. In fact one can submit their application 3 months prior to the 3-year deadline, that is, 2 years and 9 months.
