I am a LPR since 11/1/2017. I have been married since 09/2016.

 

I filed my ROC i-751 in September of 2019 and is still in process without any new updates.

 

My question is: Do i meet the criteria for Naturalization N400 and can i submit this with a I-751 still pending (which will be approved anyways) ? 
 

I am married for more than 3 years.

My LPR is worrying me, should i have to wait until 11/1/2020 (3 years of GC holder) ?

 

Obviously i am trying to avoid the higher fees that take effect on October 2nd 2020. 
 

Any advice is more than welcome. I’m just stuck on the wording on the USCIS website

As long you meet the physical presence and continuous residence requirements, you can apply 90 days earlier for 3-yr marriage based N-400. If so, you'll be eligible on 8/3/2020 acc to early file calculator. IMPT thing is to NOT submit on the FIRST day of eligibility. Submit one or two days later. Good luck!

You are a lifesaver. Panic didnt allow me to quickly research this so i appreciate your response. 
 

Now, with my I-751 still pending on Case Was Received (YSC center) and already did Biometrics for them. 
 

is it okay to file that N400 or would it create potential issues?

No issues, I plan the same since I filed my ROC in September 2019 as well.

 

Sounds like we’re in the same boat. Wonder how many folks could weigh in still on this topic.

 

Best of luck with filing, happy to know we’re lucky enough to have the old filing fees.

 

do you plan on filing “online” vs paper filing?

You can file 90 days before your 3 year years as a resident...permitting you meet the requirements (length of trips abroad) And you don’t need to wait for your ROC to be approved. You can find this all on USCIS website.

a lot of people filed for N-400 while their ROC is pending. The only issue is whether USCIS will want to have your ROC approved before you can have the N-400 interview or if they'll do both during the N-400 interview. In any case, you can apply and get it over with.

 

imo Online is very convenient and you won't have a problem with wrong payment or them not receiving your packet.

The length of marriage is irrelevant - what matters is the date when you became a permanent resident through the marriage. You can file 90 days before the 3 year anniversary of you becoming a legal permanent resident.

Thanks for the responses everyone! I will definitely (and lucky that i can) start filing in the next few weeks, going the online route. Since my i751 is pending for YSC center and that seems to be taking forever. I appreciate you all.

I will do the online and my window opens the 6th of August. So it will be the old fees.
