I am an 83 year old American citizen living as a legal

Pregunta del cliente

I am an 83 year old American citizen living as a legal resident in Spain. My 52 year old Chinese wife, a China passport holder, is a Green Card holder, which expires in October 2018. She is also a legal Spanish resident where she lives with me. She visits the USA annually to keep her Green card valid.
Question: What is the easiest, best way for my wife to renew her Green card before it expires, as she will undoubtedly out-live me and eventually intends to live with her daughter who is both living and working full time in the USA and is currently also a Green card holder? Can my wife apply for Green card renewal from abroad or does she have to reside in the USA to do so? If so, how long must she live in the USA to qualify for Green card renewal /and/or US Citizenship? When and under what circumstances can my wife apply for USA citizenship. Which is the best alternative for her; to renew her Green card or to apply for US citizenship? What advice do you have. How best should she proceed?
Thank you. Sincerely, ***** *****

Hello. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions.

Can my wife apply for Green card renewal from abroad or does she have to reside in the USA to do so?

She have to reside in the USA to pply for Green card renewal. As a U.S. Resident, your wife is expected to be living in the U.S., and only visiting abroad on a temporary basis. If She leaves the United States for extended periods, or cannot show her intent to live permanently in the U.S., she may lose her permanent resident status.

When and under what circumstances can my wife apply for USA citizenship. Which is the best alternative for her; to renew her Green card or to apply for US citizenship?

Applying for Citizenship is the best alternative for your wife. One of the conditions is to be married and living with you for last 3 years inside of the United States.

To apply for naturalization, she will need to file Form N-400, Application for Naturalization.
