    Just because someone has a criminal history does not make them automatically ineligible to naturalize. However, if you have a crime involving moral turpitude, you should discuss your situation with a qualified immigration attorney to discuss the pros and cons of filing at this time. Furthermore, you should discuss your situation before departing the United States, as well.

    Oftentimes this is possible, but there are a lot of potential pitfalls. I represent too many people in removal proceedings who have tried to file Form I-485, sometimes with assistance of notarios or attorneys unfamiliar with immigration law, and had those forms denied. Those people were then issued Notices to Appear in Immigration Court to initiate removal (deportation) proceedings. Please consult a reputable and experienced immigration attorney.

    Processing times can vary depending on visa usage and government delays. While the current wait is approximately three years. Your spouse may wait more or less than this. If you are eligible to naturalize, you might be able to speed this process up. I recommend sitting down with a qualified immigration attorney to discuss your options and the possibility of filing now while you are an LPR and then naturalizing as soon as you are eligible.
