3 years rule...?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Im having confusion, please help me. I wanted to file naturalization based on 3 years rule..but this one's confusing me>

I got Married, April 20, 2012 - if the 3 years ruled applies on this one based on the date i got married ..im already qualified to file.

BUT. I went back to my country May 2012 for emergency reason, we didn't file for AOS but instead, my husband filed a CR1 petition which was approved and i had my 2 year conditional permanent visa on May 2013.

We applied for 10 Year permanent visa and i got approved last August 2015.

if I will consider the Marriage date. April 2012 - i am qualified?

If i will consider the date i got my 2 year conditional visa, May 2013 - then i have to wait for February 2016 (90 days early filing) ..

just need enlightenment. Thank you so much, Happy New Year to all VJ's

hi

it's both, you have to be at least married for 3 years, but also be a LPR for 3 years

you can file up to 90 days prior of your 3rd year of being a LPR and It counts since you got your 2 year GC
