Date Question

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Okay quick question, it stated in the information the following:

-has been lawfully admitted for permanent residence (see preceding section);

-has resided continuously as a lawful permanent resident in the U.S. for at least 5 years prior to filing with no single absence from the United States of more than one year;

I guess my question is since my DH came on K3 he was admitted a year before he received his permanent resident status, but the purpose of the K3 is to admitted for permanent residence. I could be wrong but was wondering which date do we go by to file for naturalization. Also, how many months before your 3 year anniversary can you file, 3 or 6? Clearly if it was the earlier time we are way pass 3 years so we predict the answer to be the latter but want to make sure. Thanks so much!

Its the "resident since" date that tells you how long he's been a permanent resident. he can apply for N-400 90 days before the 3 year anniversary of being an LPR. Must have been married 3 years as well.
