just a little confusion about the qualifying time to be in country and in state of residence. my wife has more than 18 months in usa since greencard was issued. but she had to return to her country for a month recently and will return to usa the 28 of july. we can file n400 the first of august. i read somewhere about 3 months in state residency. is that 3 months total or 3 months consecutive before filing.thanks in advance for opinions.

On her GC is a date which says "Resident Since" she may apply 3 years minus 90 days from that date providing on the day she applies you have been married for 3 years. If you haven't been married 3 years on that date you have to wait until you have.

The residence in State is 3 months before applying but if she is back home on vacation her US residence in State still continues.

The 3 month residency is about moving within the US. If your old and new addresses are serviced by different district offices, then you will have to wait 3 months before you are eligible to apply... but this is not the case you are talking about...

You wife's residency remains in affect as long as she doesn't change address or officially move to her home country.... you should be fine.
