is it gonna b problem if i mailed out 3 days before 90 begin?

USCIS can be " nit picky" when it comes not following the instructions. Wish you luck BUT why would you do such a dumb thing and play with the system after all you've been thru.

I'm sure it will work out in the long run. I guess this is your last chance to be a "masochist" with USCIS being the sadist!!~ LOL

Yeah probably will take 3 days to get there. What ! You in a hurry to vote in the upcoming elections? Not much of a choice! Tell them you are voting for McCain and maybe they'll expedite your petition!!! :bonk:

Must feel good that you are on the last trip on having to be a yes man to USCIS. I never have had to "hold my mug and kiss ###" my entire life as I've done in the last 3 years.

I tried my luck with mailing out 2 or 3 days eariler.

I thought same logic as yours.

It turned out that my priority date is within 90 days window, so I think it is safe.

I think it was either they hold it for a couple of days to match with 90 days rule, or pure my luck.

It seems like exactly 90 days before 5 years anniversary. ^^

If they feel that I sent too early, they will send it back to me any way. ^^

But it is up to you whether you want to take some risk or not.

Not to scare you or anything but I read on here and other forums that USCIS accepted applications that were filed early. However, at the interview the applicant was denied because of it. So it is your risk to take. One more thing: EVEN if you file now you wont be able to vote, I'm certain. The deadline to register to vote in most states is usually 20-30 days before the election, it is highly doubtful that your application will be approved in month and a half. Not that I'm negative, just realistic. Best of luck to you!

I agree. its best to mail your N-400 within the 90 days window. taking a risk ain't do any good when it comes to dealing with USCIS.

Mailed ours out precisely 88 days before the 3rd anniversary, needed that extra time to check and double check every answer we put in, plus organize the evidence that is far more important than gaining those two days. One error and you will get it back even losing your fees that you paid or really causing severe delays. So would pay far more attention to that fact of life than those extra three days. If you get a RFE, can really expect to wait forever.

Agreed! When you receive NOA1, make sure that you have priority date, so it is within 90 days window.

In my case, I had weekend in the middle, so I assumed that post office will take more time to deliver. ^^

But in most case, I won't recommend to send it eariler.

Quick question, I see that you were a CR1/IR1. Were you living with your wife in the US for 3 full years?

That's the main deal-breaker that my friend ran into when he went to the interview. He was married for more than that but he was physically living together with his wife for less than 3 years. They made him do it all again. The time was one thing but he had to pay twice! It's expensive enough once.

the days counts for the 3 years is base on the date on the green card, not the date people got married.

Not always...

On the day you file as the spouse of a US Citizen, ALL THREE of the following must be true:

* You must have been married to and living in valid marital union with a US Citizen spouse for at least a full 3 years

* Your spouse must have been a US Citizen for at least a full three years

* You must have been living in the US continuously after having been admitted for permanent residence (Green Card) for at least three years less 90 days.

Whichever one of those happens last is the one that determines the earliest day you can file. Some people (us, for example) meet the third one before meeting the first one. In our case, the first constraint is what determined our filing date.
