Just came from my greencard interview where i got declined due to my expired visa.
The person in the office said, the only way i can get my greencard if my husband go for the citizenship. Can he get the citizenship even if I'm here without visa ?
Thank you for the info,
my greencard application was previously pre-aproved and we only find out today at the office that it's a no due regarding to my visa situation.. On the citizenship application there is a question regarding to the spouse status and I'm afraid that my husband can get in trouble because of my expired visa.. Sorry for the typos, I'm pretty upset :) (Apply)
Don't worry. Yes, your husband may file for US citizenship in his own right if he is eligible for it. Consult with experienced immigration attorney to assist him with the process.

Yes, he can: if your husband has been a permanent resident for five years and meets other eligibility requirements for naturalization, your status or lack thereof would have no impact on his N-400 application.
