Can a US citizen who is unemployed sponsor his wife whose I-94 has not expired yet for US citizenship?
The US citizen can sponsor his wife for a green card, not for US citizenship. Since he is currently unemployed, he will need to get a joint sponsor to complete an affidavit of support for his wife.

If you are a non-us citizen and you are married to a US citizen but your I-94 has expired can you still apply for a green card?
Yes you can, your spouse would have to file all the necessary papers for you. The I-130, I-485, I-765 along with the I-864 affidavit of support. If your spouse is does not meet the required dollar amount in income, they can have a family member or friend sponsor you jointly. These documents would ha…ve to be accompanied with five (5) recent passport photos of you and one recent one of your spouse. Copies of all your documents passport, birth certificate, marriage license, expired I-94 form, your spouse's U.S birth certificate, copies of any divorce decrees for both of you if any, a physical specifically for immigration including testing results for syphillus and HIV, along with your immunization records. Once all the above is properly submitted with the necessary fees ($1,010) You should get a reply within six weeks or so to acknowlege receipt, and set up an appointment to be finger printed. Three to four months there after you should receive your working papers which will enable you to get a SS# to work. Eight months to a year after you should be called for an appointment to determine if you will be granted your Green Card, the length of your marriage prior to applying would determine if your Green card is Conditional or Permanent. I recently just went through the exact process, good luck to you!.. (MORE)

A permanent resident can apply for citizenship after 3 years of marriage to a US citizen. You will need to fill out form N-400 ( Naturalization) which comes with a $330 (processing fee) and a $70 Biometric (finger print & background check). If you are applying based on 5 years as a Permanent Resi…dent or 3 years as a Permanent Resident married to a U.S. citizen, you may file for naturalization up to 90 days before you meet the continuous residence requirement. For example, if you are applying based on 3 years of continuous residence as a Permanent Resident married to a U.S. citizen, you can apply any time after you have been a Permanent Resident in continuous residence for 3 years minus 90 days. You may send your application before you have met the requirement for continuous residence only. Therefore, you must still have been married to and living with your U.S.citizen spouse for 3 years before you may file your application. You must also meet all the other eligibility requirements when you file your application with USCIS. Personal Experience I married my husband 13 years ago (I am a US Citizen).

You can apply for naturalization if you are confident that you are eligible. It is not always in the best interest of a permanent resident to apply to become a naturalized citizen. When you apply for naturalization, you are giving the government information that may result not only in denial of y…our citizenship application but may also place you in removal (deportation) proceedings. For example, if you were outside of the United States for a long period of time, you may have abandoned your permanent residency without knowing it. Or you might have a criminal history that makes you deportable, in which case you would definitely want to avoid applying for citizenship. It is always best to consult with a citizenship attorney before filing your naturalization application. (MORE)

It's not an easy task but there are ways to sponsor your spouse. First of ask around other immigrants, they probably know of places that can help you know where to start. There are people out there who dedicate much of their time to helping immigrants gain citizenship. There isn't much help on the I…mmigration website and much of the information is outdated. So I think your best bet is to talk to people and ask around. And plan on spending a few thousand dollars! Good Luck! (MORE)

POTENTIALLY EXPATRIATING ACTS Section 349 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1481), as amended, states that U.S. citizens are subject to loss of citizenship if they perform certain specified acts voluntarily and with the intention to relinquish U.S. citizenship. These acts inclu…de: . obtaining naturalization in a foreign state (Sec. 349 (a) (1) INA); . taking an oath, affirmation or other formal declaration to a foreign state or its political subdivisions (Sec. 349 (a) (2) INA); . entering or serving in the armed forces of a foreign state engaged in hostilities against the U.S. or serving as a commissioned or non-commissioned officer in the armed forces of a foreign state (Sec. 349 (a) (3) INA); . accepting employment with a foreign government if (a) one has the nationality of that foreign state or (b) an oath or declaration of allegiance is required in accepting the position (Sec. 349 (a) (4) INA); . formally renouncing U.S. citizenship before a U.S. diplomatic or consular officer outside the United States (sec. 349 (a) (5) INA); . formally renouncing U.S. citizenship within the U.S. (but only under strict, narrow statutory conditions) (Sec. 349 (a) (6) INA); . conviction for an act of treason (Sec. 349 (a) (7) INA). ADMINISTRATIVE STANDARD OF EVIDENCE As already noted, the actions listed above can cause loss of U.S. citizenship only if performed voluntarily and with the intention of relinquishing U.S. citizenship. The Department has a uniform administrative standard of evidence based on the premise that U.S. citizens intend to retain United States citizenship when they obtain naturalization in a foreign state, subscribe to a declaration of allegiance to a foreign state, serve in the armed forces of a foreign state not engaged in hostilities with the United States, or accept non-policy level employment with a foreign government.
