Asked over 1 year ago - York, PA

My green card will be expired next month. Should I renew my green card first then apply for citizenship? Or can I apply for citizenship now? Thanks.

    Answered . You can apply for citizenship without renewing your GC; With that said, if you do file I-90 to renew it, you will have to wait until it is adjudicated before you can seek citizenship; It is done so the A file would not get bounced around as a football; You decide; If you need to travel in the next six months, probably seek renewal first, if not then go right a head and file for citizneship
