  1. Thanks for your response. Actually, I didn't file my taxes as a bonafide resident since my employment in Europe is a fixed 2 year position which disqualifies me from claiming tax exclusion under bonafide resident clause.
  2. Hi, I have a somewhat complex situation and I was wondering if you guys could give your opinions/suggestions: I have been a permanent resident since September 2015 as a spouse of a US citizen. I resided in the US until September 2017, when I left for a job (a fixed 2 year position) in Europe. Of course, I acquired the re-entry permit before I left. I came back to the US for Christmas on December 15, 2017 and stayed until January 7, 2018. I then went back to Europe, again I came back to the US on June 26, 2018 and left on July 14, then again I was back in the US on Dec 2, 2018 and left on Jan 14, 2019. I will be back for good on June 22nd this year. During all this time, my wife lived in the US in our rented apartment which is in both our names and and worked her job. Also, both our cars are on both our names and in addition some of the utilities are on my name. We of course filed for taxes jointly last year and will also do so this year and pretty much did everything that a regular long distance couple would do. From the dates, it's clear that I slightly exceeded 6 months my trip abroad two times by a few days. From https://www.uscis.gov/policymanual/HTML/PolicyManual-Volume12-PartD-Chapter3.html While I can clearly establish the last two evidences but my concern is with the 1st point which clearly disqualifies me. My question is does any one know whether I can apply for Naturalization after 18 months of returning to the US (to establish continued physical presence) or do I need to wait 24 months + 1 day to establish continued residence again, according to
