Citizenship, generally, requires 5 years of permanent residence and physical presence in the U.S. for at least half of the five year period prior to filing the application. There is also a requirement of good moral character, English proficiency, and civics knowledge. If you obtained permanent residence through a U.S. citizen spouse, the required period is three years.
