Citizenship/Naturalization at 5 Years instead of 3???

Good Morning! Its been years since I have been in this forum. But, I have a question and need help! A little overview: I brought my fiance on a Fiance Visa from Cuba in 2009 and he became a permanent resident. We are still happily married, but never applied for naturalization at 3 years because we were struggling with a new baby and money was tight. However, I have now started filing the N-400 application online so that he can become a US Citizen (money is wayy better now). My questions is since he has been a permanent resident for more than 5 years: Should I select for the naturalization application the condition that says: 1) Be a permanent resident for 5 years or 2)Married to a US Citizen for at least 3 years?? Im confused??! Anybody in here applied for Naturalization way after the 3 years??Im thinking on selecting number 1: Permanent Resident for 5 years but I am not sure. Please help!?

Not Enough Tax Returns?

Hey VisaJourney Friends,

My husband will be applying for citizenship based on the 3-year rule in the coming year, so we re starting to look into what documents we need to assemble for the application. Backstory, he entered the U.S. on a K1 visa and is currently in processing for the I-751 Removal of Conditions.

I m seeing from the citizenship requirements that we should submit three years of tax returns. Here is the issue: by the time we file the N-400, we will only have two years of married filing jointly tax returns. The first year that we would have filed together, he was not able to work in the U.S. yet because he was in AOS processing, and we had previously lived in Ecuador, where I was making a small salary working with a US nonprofit based in Ecuador, not enough to meet the U.S. minimum income tax filing requirements. I have my W-2 from that year to prove that I did not meet the minimum filing requirement.

What should we do? For the I-751, we submitted my W-2 from that year, plus an affidavit we both signed explaining the situation.


Thank you in advance!

NOA1 -01/10/18 NOA2 09/25/18

Today makes 6 weeks after NOA2 and no case number as of today. I was able to officially open a research request with NVC today. I also got an email from uscis stating my case was transferred to NVC on 10/31/18 and when I called today the officer said he didn t see anywhere in his system where it has transferred. I also opened a congressional inquiry today. Now I know each case is different but so many cases with NOA2 dates after mine have received their case number and even an interview date. My question is has this happened to you? And would be a possible reason for delay?

Cubans Guyana Interview

Good Morning

Just sharing my experience. My husband already had his interview in Guyana on September. I know you may have many questions however everything was good. If you follow all the steps that you receive from NVC on the interview's letter you will be fine. About Guyana, we went to a hotel, you should be prepared, everything you will need is expensive (Food and hotel ) transportation is not expensive. We went to a hotel that I booked online. People are nice they do not speak a lot you will need to approach them if you need something. The food is veryyyyy spicy you need to make sure that you order everything ( Original ) and not spicy. The taxis are cheap you can ask the hotel front desk to arrange them for you at any time needed. We got the food from a hostal ( Cuban people who sale food ). You need to buy bottles of water because it is not potable. Before landing fill a immigration form for each person who is traveling even if you are a family, they do not accept immigration form per family, it should be filled personally even if you travel with children which I found really weird because children had to sign them. An important advise for the medical exam is to be there as earlier as possible the same for the interview, they do not follow the hours schedule for them, they attend people on the same order they reach the place. For the interview you will see a long line but you don't have to wait on this line, this line is for local people , just go with the officer in the entrance door and show her your interview letter and your passport. Last advise is that you should be relaxed, our interview was nice and most of the people there said that it was nice to them too , just answer clearly everything they ask for, they know you are nervous so you don't have to hide that lol . Good luck for everyone who is still waiting.
