Renew Greencard or Naturalization?

Hello,

It is time for me to renew my green card. I was thinking maybe I should just go with naturalization however I have some questions. I originally received my green card through marriage. Right now my marriage is coming to a quick end after 12 years. If I chose to go with naturalization can I just file as myself with very little marriage details as we are in the process of separating? Or should I renew my green card and then once divorced file for naturalization?

Thanks,

RE: Naturalization

If you are divorced or are about to get a divorce from the spouse who originally you obtained permanent residence from, you can still apply for naturalization if you have been a permanent resident for at least 5 years and you have complied with the other requirements. Since you stated that you have been married for 12 years, I am assuming that you have been a permanent resident for the past 12 years as well, in that case the 5 year permanent resident would be satisfied.

You may want to consult with a experienced immigration attorney if there are more details surrounding your case as a experienced attorney can help you through the process and inform you on the requirements needed to apply for naturalizations on your own without your spouse.

Certainly call the police. There may be whistleblower laws that protect you, so contacting a local attorney may help you worry less about resigning / losing your job over doing the right thing.

Parole Packet Services

If your application for renewing your green card is denied. DO NOT submit this form if you are a conditional resident seeking to remove conditions on your Green Card. If your green card is about to expire within six months, you may be wondering whether to apply for US citizenship. You must renew your green card if it expires within 6 months of filing Form N-400, Application for Naturalization.
