Recommended Posts

Hi guys, i am a greencard holder and married to a US citizen. Resident since 2/19/2013 and i should be able to file for naturalization this coming 2/19/2016 and file 90 days ahead which is on 11/21/2015( per USCIS calculator) 3year rule. Now my situation is i left the US for 6months and 21 days, maintain residency in the US like paid the bills, paid taxes, bank account, maintain communication and money transfers etc. i had to go to the Philippines to process my children's visa and thankfully i was able to expedite everything despite some unforeseen delays.

(Somebody on VJ told me my clock resets if its over a year or paused if its under a year)

My question is do you add the times you were out to your anniversary date and then file for naturalization? Example feb 19, 2016 plus 6 months and 21 days = SEPTember 9, 2016 early filing is 90 days before so it would be JUNE 19,2016

Anybody here who had the same situation like me? Can you share your journey with me. I really want to be naturalized asap (pending european trips and planning to petition parents) thanks for reading.
