Hi,

My U.S. citizen husband died after 2 years of marriage and my naturalization fall under the 5-year rule. What are the requirements that I need to submit? I've been reading all the information and requirements for naturalization in this site but I just found under the 3 years rule. Please help me. Thanks...

Sorry to hear about your loss.

You may want to take a look at the naturalization guide, as it explains a lot of the details everyone needs to know. The list of documents to submit is much less than the 3 year rule though.

Here is a direct link:

Let us know if you still have more questions...

The requirements are that you are a GC holder for 5 years, understand English, can write a few words, and pass the civic test.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Please elaborate the papers that I need to submit. Do I still need to submit all the information about my late husband, his birth certificate,copy of his passport, marriage contract etc? Thanks.

Sorry for yer loss, though.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

Still a debate about tax returns, not even clear on that myself yet, but for my step daughter, four simple one page sheets. Unfortunately a death certificate can be included to show how your relationship ended.

Once you are a GC holder for 5 years, your husband or ex-husband is not part of the game anymore. It's like he never existed.

Taxes . . . yes, just get tax transcripts for 2005 'til 2009.

Not a very sensitive comment considering the OP mentioned he had passed away. Just saying.

"Part 8. Information about your marital history." Shows no preference to be filled out any differently for the marriage 3 year or the conventional five year application. Only way to skip it, is to have never been married. Not only your marriage history, but also the marriage history of your present spouse.

Every blank has to be filled out either with the correct information or an "N/A", typing in "N/A" for a marriage that ended with a deceased spouse would be a lie with disastrous consequences if caught.
