Default Naturalisation

Hi all,
so I moved to the US in 2012 on a spousal visa, and married my lovely wife in August of that year. I went through the various changes of status, finally obtaining my green card which says resident since 12/03/12 and says it expires on 03/27/25.

Sadly I was divorced in September 2017 when she did the dirty with another guy and left me.

Am I right in thinking that I now meet the criteria yo apply for naturalization to US citizenship as I have had more than 5 years as a permanent resident?

Many thanks in advance.

Yes. But I must say that's an odd expiration date on your green card. Even if you got a 10-year one, the expiration date would be 12/2/2022.

I think the 10 years runs from when tyou obtain the 10 year green card from the 2 year conditional green cards, which would make the expiry correct.

So on another note, as I was married and am now divorced, will I need my marriage and divorce certs for the naturalization process?

Yes you will need them. It specifically asks for them in the instructions.

well, they already have your marriage cert but will want the divorce cert. I did not take mine, but had the opportunity to take it in later that day. The interviewer called me in as she forgot to give me the civics test!. Otherwise it was RFE.
