We got married in 2010 in Brazil but it took me a long time to come here,My husband is American citizen,and we just filed to adjust my status ,the question is we have been married for almost 3 years now,but we have been living together for a few months in here only..I have an interview coming next month,if i get approved, do i get the 10 year green card ? and then how long waiting to apply for citizenship ..thank you
If your permanent resident status application is approved, then you will get a 10-year green card. If you are a permanent resident, and you are living with your husband for 3 years as a permanent resident, then you can apply for citizenship. If you are not living with your husband, then after 5 years as a permanent resident, you can apply for citizenship. Best of luck to you.
