When to file for Citizenship

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband previously posted a question about when to file for citizenship. I have a few questions regarding this. He became a permanent resident 5/19/08. I know he has to wait three years before he can go through the Naturalization process. I looked on the United States Immigration website and it stated you could not apply until you have been a permanent resident for 3 years.

I have seen posts on here where others have applied 90 days prior to their three year mark. I just want to make sure we don't make a mistake and apply to soon and then get rejected. Is is true you can apply 90 days prior to your three year mark, and if so, do they still wait to approve you until your three year mark? Are we applying 90 days ahead of time so he is approved in a timely fashion?

Thank you for any answers to my questions, it would be very helpful

If you apply too early they just send it back to you saying to apply at a later date when it is within your time frame. It doesn't make anything negative against you.

yes, he can apply 90 days prior to his 3 years if he is still married to you. it's tricky because you have to count the 90 days. if you send it too soon, he will be denied.

if it is filed correctly and he has his interview before the 3 year mark, he will have to wait until the 3 year mark for the oath ceremony, that has happened to a few people. check the N400.

www.uscis.gov/forms and look for the N400 and read the instructions.
