I am on h1b right now. My husband has GC, he will be eligible to apply for citizenship next year. Should we wait until he becomes citizen to apply GC or should I apply now ?

Just apply for the gc. Why do you want to wait

Some people told me the process to apply for GC if married a US citizen would be faster and easier ? Any idea ?

Because wait times are much much longer when being married to someone with a GC.

Yes they are faster and easier (being married to a citizen

^Accenture 1: Thanks . However, the priority date for spouse GC in my city is December 2016 lol so not that’s bad too.

Just apply for GC, after a year your hubby will apply and then after there is still a wait period by that time you would probably get the GC.

Priority date varies by city? And the answer remains the same. Still quicker being married to a citizen. Go with what HCL said
