What date counts for 3 yr residency requirement

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

With my AOS from K1 on its way, we are starting to tentatively look ahead to the next steps on the road to citizenship, even though that's a few yrs down the line.

I was wondering what date is relevant for the 3 yr residency requirement. The guide on VJ says I may file for Naturalization "after residing continuously in the United States for three years". So what starts that? My entry into the US with the K1? My marriage date? My filing for AOS? The date on my green card?

I guess the same questions applies to the ROC for my green card. I haven't received that yet, so I am wondering what the 2 yrs validity of my initial GC is based on? The decision date? The filing date? My entry into the US?

Thanks,

topaz

When you get your GC - look for resident since date . THAT is the most important date - for ROC and for naturalization. Count from that date.


ROC 2009
Naturalization 2010

if you are married, and living togather in the us for three years, then you can file 90 days before your three years, for the n-400 citizenship,

No. You can file 90 days prior to three years after the date on your green card. Just married and living together in the US for three years is not good enough.
