Hi guys,

I have a question regarding the N-400 application. I found below in the N-400 application form.

"I have resided in the district or state in which I am applying for citizenship for the last three months. " which means I have to reside in the state where I apply for citizenship for the last 3 months?

I am outside USA right now. If I apply for N-400 on Jan 5, 2017(within 90 days prior to Mar 25, 2017), I have to reside in New York through Oct 5, 2016- Jan, 4 2017? Is that correct?

Also, I will have my GC for 3 years on Mar 25, 2017 (under 3 years rule), which means I can apply for N-400 within 90 days prior to Mar 25, 2017, is this correct?

Thank you in advance.

If you are moving from another state to NY yes that is correct, you have to live there for 3 months before you can apply. If you live already in NY and you went to visit overseas than no, the 3 months residency requirement doesn't apply to you because you already reside within the district.

Regarding the early date filing you have to apply within 90 days (not 3 months) before the resident since. So if you have a resident since March 25 you have to apply 90 days before that.

Thank you for your reply. I just got confused by this in the N-400 form.

"I have resided in the district or state in which I am applying for citizenship for the last three months."

I live in New York since I received my GC, its been almost 3 years. The confusion I have is if i APPLY FOR N-400 form on Jan 5,2017, do i have to live in New York through OCT 4, 2016- Jan 4, 2017. Does this apply to me or not? Because I am outside USA right now visiting family, won't be back until Nov, so i want to know when I can apply N-400.

Thank you!
