5 years as a Permanent Resident (Green Card)
how long do you if permanent resident card to wait before you apply for citizenship
yes u can,but its a really long process.
If you are a conditional resident 90 days before it expires you need to adjust status and get the green card with 10 years validity. Permanent lawful resident can stay as long as they want provided they renew their green card which is valid only for 10 years.
well, it depends what status you are living under. Like a permanent resident or on a visa. If you are a permanent resident then you can stay here as long as you stay out of trouble and renew your card when it expires. If you are using a visa, then you have to leave when your visa expires or apply for an extension.
Marrying a US citizen does not automatically give a foreign national the right to permanent resident status (green card). He or she will have to follow the prescribed procedures according to federal law, there is no way to determine how long it might take to receive permanent resident status or if the foreign national will be granted such.

Depends on whether the petitioner is a citizen or permanent resident and your relationship to that petitioner. It can be anywhere from 6-9 months to 23 years.

An alien is not illegal as long as she/he has documentation of status. An alien who is documented to be a permanent resident is not illegal. If the alien does not have and never has had documentation of an immigration status, then that person is an illegal alien.
When you are a permanent resident of Canada, you can live outside of the country for two out of five years. Any longer than that, and the country has the right to strip you of your citizenship.
