place of residence and trips out of US for past 5 years

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone could help me with this. I immigrated to US with an immigrant visa and became a permanent resident in Sep 2006 on family based immigration. I know that I am eligible to apply for naturalization 90 days in advance of 5 years(meaning late June 2011). Form N-400 under parts 6 and 7 asks about places of residence and trips out of US in the last 5 years. It makes sense to me that I only list the places and trips since I became a US resident in Sep 2006, not since June 2006 when I was still out of US. Am I right or should I list all palces for the 5 years prior to application date?

Thanks.

Well.. unless the question says "since becoming an LPR" (which it doesn't) then I would think that it's the last 5 years, regardless of your status.

I am eligible for N-400 when I've been an LPR for 3 years as long as I'm still married to my USC husband (like all people who AOS'd thanks to marriage) so 2 of the listed years will have me in Australia still. So this sort of situation (listing a period where you're not an LPR) is standard for them.

Sometimes it's good to apply logic, sometimes it's a hindrance.

List all absences since you became a resident. By the time your N-400 is adjudicated, that will be about 5 years.


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.
