Application based on Marriage Vs. 5 year residency

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good day everyone! Am about ready to send in my application for citizenship, just want some inputs from all the expert advisers here in VJ. I have been here in the US and married to a US citizen for 8 wonderful years. I became a lawful permanent resident 2008. Now my question is, should I still have to go through the based on marriage or the 5 year residency? I know this is a silly question but just want to make sure I'm doing the right thing. Thanks!

ya, use the 5 year rule instead. If you filled through the 3 year marriage rule, you need to submit last 5 years of tax form, marriage cert, bank statements etc...a lot of paper!

I filed under the 3-year rule and got my interview on July 7th and the IO was a pain in the butt, asking for more proof of out marriage taxes,bills,car insurance, car titles and medical records from 2011 to present now i am stuck waiting for a response from them. I passed all the test but a discussion could not be made. :ranting:
