Time as a resident in a USCIS district or state

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I was reading the following and I wanted to see if anyone can shed some light on the meaning behind it.

One of the items for naturalization eligibility is the time spent as a resident in a USCIS district or state, and the definition is as follows (From naturalization guide):

Most people must live in the USCIS district or state in which they are applying for at least 3 months before applying. A distinct is a geographical area is defined by USCIS and served by one of the USCIS "District Offices".

Does this mean if I live in State A that applicants mail their N-400 to Texas lockbox and move to State B where applicants also mail their N-400 to Texas Lockbox then it is fine? or am I misunderstanding their concept of "District offices"?

We moved from NW Indiana to Illinois and had no issues - it was in the same district office (Chicago) like it would've been. District office means the office that has jurisdiction over your place of residence.

Thanks. I am going to search the USCIS website and see if they have lists of district offices.

Thanks again....
