I've been a resident since 01/08/09. How long is it till I can take the citizen ship?
If you have been married to a U.S. Citizen since the day you became a permanent resident, then you are eligible to become a U.S. Citizen 3 years after the date you became a permanent resident. Otherwise, 5 years.
You may submit your application as early as 3 months prior to the 3- or 5-year anniversary.
