N400 Online Form 5 years of Residency (applying after 3 years)

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm filing the online N400 with my wife after ~3 years of permanent residency.  It's asking for her residency over the last 5 years.  Is this important? Should I just not worry about the other 2 years before that even though it's saying it is missing?

I am not sure if you already found answers, but the 5-year of permanent residence is only selected if she is not applying with the base of marriage, what I am trying to say is that if you have been married for 3 years (subtracting any time she was outside of the country) you will have to prove that you are married and provide the documentation and you both have to go to the interview. I believe the only difference is that at the 5-year mark you don't have to base your process in the fact that she immigrated based on marriage. 


And just make sure that she indeed has 3 years in the country subtracting any time she traveled outside of the USA.


Filling in March

You want to go back 5 years about your residence. I took whatever I submitted with AOS (you had to provide residence history there as well) and updated with most current address.


Is your wife coming back before you submit the application?
