Here's the story. I enlisted in the Marines and leave for boot on April 4. I've been a green card holder since last year May. I want to get my citizenship ASAP. I've read online that I need to serve 1 year first before I can apply. Is there any way I can get my citizenship faster because I just found out today that my girlfriend in the philippines is pregnant for less than a month. I visited back in jan-feb. How long does citizenship for a military member take after you file it? I'm planning to get her a fiance visa ASAP. I know my situation is messed up. I just want to know what forms I need to file and when do I file them. I clearly have no idea what I'm gonna do and no money to pay a lawyer to do it.
