Hello everyone! Hope all is well!!¬†ūüėä

 

I am currently confused with what paper or papers to file. 

 

I m a holder of a conditional green card which will expire on November  2019. My husband (american citizen) got employed with the US Govt (he is a contractor) last December 2018 and we moved in Asia.

 

1. I know that, generally, A CPR must file an ROC withon 90 days from the expiration of the gc. But there is also the¬†Volume 12 ‚Äď Citizenship & Naturalization, Part G ‚Äď Spouses of U.S. Citizens
Chapter 5 ‚Äď Conditional Permanent Resident Spouses and Naturalization which states that:¬†

C. Spouses Eligible to Naturalize without Filing Petition to Remove Conditions

A CPR spouse of a U.S. citizen employed abroad may naturalize without filing a petition to remove conditions if:

‚ÄĘThe CPR spouse has been a CPR for less than one year and nine months; and

‚ÄĘThe CPR spouse does not reach the 90-day filing period for the petition to remove conditions prior to the final adjudication of his or her naturalization application or the time of the Oath of Allegiance.xxx

 

I satisy the requirment regardng being a CPR (I am still 1 year and 3 months as of today).

But for the requirment "CPR spouse does not reach the 90-day filing period for the petition to remove conditions prior to the final adjudication of his or her naturalization application or the time of the Oath of Allegiance" is something that I cant determine but the USCIS.

 

Anyone here who went through this situation? please help. Please share to me your experience.

 

2. If I will file Removal of Conditions, where shall I submit the packet if we are stationed abroad due to husband's employment with the US Govt? The website only provides addresses for those inside the United States. 

 

Thank you verty much for your time and may God bless you a hundred fold.

You can file N-400 under 319b now. In addition, you have to file Removal of Conditions (ROC) when you reach 90-day filing period for ROC - 1 year and 9 month since your GC was issued.


ROC

12/11/2018 - I-751 mailed (requested a fee waiver) to Lewisville, TX via FedEx

12/13/2018 - package delivered 

01/02/2019 - received text message from USCIS with case number starting with EAC

01/12/2019 - submitted online e-Request for non-delivery of NOA (the extension letter)

01/24/2019 - received the response to e-Request via e-mail, which says: "Please allow 30 days from the date of this correspondence for the notice to be sent".

01/28/2019 - received NOA (the extension letter), which extends GC for 18 months

01/29/2019 - received biometrics appointment letter

02/08/2019 - biometrics completed

Thanks so much for the info @Kiolas, highly appreciated. 

 

If I will file N-400 under 319b, is there a different mailing address where I should submit the petition? 

 

Thank you! ūüėä

USCIS suggests to send N-400 to their office which is specialized in 319b - Washington District Office in Fairfax, VA.

 

As far as ROC -- look up where to send I-751 for Virginia state: https://www.uscis.gov/i-751   

 

For U.S. Postal Service (USPS):

USCIS
P.O. BOX 660480
Dallas, TX 75266

For FedEx, UPS, and DHL deliveries:

USCIS
Attn: I-751
2501 S State Hwy 121 Business
Suite 400
Lewisville, TX 75067
