Your Alien or “A” number is the number that immigration assigns to you for all immigration-related matters. This number is listed on every correspondence from USCIS as well as any approval and is usually nine digits long.
Naturalization is the legal process of going from a legal permanent resident to a United States Citizen. If your green card is based on a marriage to a U.S. citizen, you are eligible for naturalization after only three years as a resident. For all other legal residents, you must wait for five years before being able to move forward with this process.
Marriage Green Card
A marriage green card is the legal immigration process to become a permanent resident of the United States based on a U.S. citizen or legal resident sponsor who is your spouse. This is an immigrant visa that requires an interview from the sponsor and the immigrant.
