Everett, WA |
Hi, I got my permanent resident card on 11/26/2008. Can I file for Citizenship on 08/28/2013? If yes,why on the USCIS web page they do not mention it ,and they say it needs to be at least 5 years or 3 years if the person is married to US citizen?
Generally the answer to your question is yes you are eligible to apply 4 years and 9 months after being a green card holder. However, it is best to consult an immigration attorney before applying for citizenship.

You may file your naturalization application 3 months prior to your 5-year anniversary of being a permanent resident. I have no idea about the USCIS website, but as you will see from my answer as well as that of my colleagues, you may file 3 months before your 5-year anniversary.
