Hi,

I am eligible to apply for US Citizenship because I am married to an American citizen and will have been a permanent resident for 3 years on 07/27/2009.

My question is this. Do I have to wait to apply until the 3 year anniversary of my being a permanent resident? Or can I apply before that date to get the process going?

Thanks!

Hello Henry,

According to the N-400 application instructions, you may file up to 90 days before your "continuous residence" requirement is met. In your case, on or about April 27, 2009.

Hope this helps,

Goran
