  1. You need to have an attorney file the paperwork. I offer discounts to military personnel, for a free consultation give me a call.

  2. Military service members and their dependents may be eligible for naturalization. Please see the following link for more information


  3. Need a lot more facts on your case. Where is the spouse? If in the US, is he/she here illegally? Legally? Do you have kids? The process involves filing a relative petition, establishing he/she is your spouse & either doing consular processing in spouse's home country or adjusting here (depending on facts). It can take between 6 months & 2 years again depending on the facts. You should see a lawyer.


  4. In most cases the dependents of active military are expedited and in many cases may qualify for parole in place if the dependent entered the U.S. without documentation. We have handled many of these and woudl be happy to advise you.
