Yes you can become a citizen but it is not automatic because you married a US citizen. You have one thing going for you - your green card. You have to file form N400 - Naturalization papers with the INS to become a citizen. It might take a while because since 9/11, the US has tightened the whole Immigration process and that's good. So, go to the INS home page, printoff the N400, read it carefully and thoroughly, and go from there. You might want to get some qualified help (Attorney, catholic charities, pro bono organizations for immigration, etc). Hope this helps Thank you for the help. i will have my girl try it out. her Green Cards expires in 2 years.
