I was hoping that someone could tell me how long you must wait to apply for US citizenship if you arrived on a K-1 Visa, got divorced before ROC and received a permanent GC with a waiver. 

 

Thank you!

You have to wait 4 years and 9 months from the start date of your first Green Card, since marriage to a U.S. citizen is not your basis.  If you had not divorced, it would have been 2 years and 9 months wait.
