You can send in your application 90 days before the 3rd anniversary of the Resident Since date on your application IF:

1- your spouse has been a citizen for 3 full years on the day that you apply


2- you have been married for 3 full years on the day that you apply


3- you meet the physical presence and continuous residence requirements described in the USCIS naturalization guide (M476)
