If my father just became a US citizen about two months ago and I have been here since I was about four illegaly how long now that my father is a citizen will it take for me to become a perm resident?

When someone comes over to the United States it takes you 15 years in order to be eligible to become an American citizen and on top of that you have to take course, on being an American citizen and you have to pass the test at the end of the class.

the last post its completely WRONG. because it doesnt take 15 years to become an American citizen. if you have a green card it takes 5 years to apply to become a us citizen. If you join the armed forces like the army, navy, marines, airforce and coast guard it takes 6 months after you joined to apply for a us citizen paid by the government. i got my greencard in Jan 2007, joined the airforce in nov 2007 for 6 years, and in jul 2008 i became a US CITIZEN.
