One of our Santa Ana clients was approved for naturalization recently. He has been a permanent resident for three years, and we represented him through the entire process. He obtained his conditional permanent residency based on his marriage to his US citizen wife. Two years later, we helped him file the I-751 petition for removal of conditions, and the case was approved without an interview. One year later we filed the N-400 application for naturalization.
As the spouse of a US citizen and lawful permanent resident for the past three years, he was eligible to naturalize two years earlier than most permanent residents. When we filed, we included evidence that he has lived with his wife for the past three years. The interview went smoothly and his case was approved on the spot.
We plan to move forward with petitioning for his parents. As a US citizen, he can petition for his parents and visas will be immediately available to them. Adjustment of status will be available as well because they entered the United States lawfully albeit many years ago.
The client and his family are very excited to be moving forward with the parents green cards. They have lived in the United States for many years, have paid taxes and worked hard, and have raised their children here.
