  1. That's the 33 months I mentioned. No need to get hung up in the weeds regarding 6 months or 180 days. I won't be counting exact days/minutes to squeeze under the wire. Could be 5 months or 4. Interesting point about the marital relationship. How ####### are they about that? Are they going to want evidence we sleep together? We have property in the Philippines that requires maintenance and she needs to stay here to get her time in. It's not like I can pop over there on weekends. When we're in the same country we'll definitely be together and when we're apart we do some texting but not a lot because of the 12 hour time difference. We'd video but Philippine internet is dismal. Anyway, another concern I thought of is the residency thing. If we do this longish trip, the plan would be to do it at the end of our lease. Put our van and stuff in a storage unit and head for the Phils. Then a new lease on return. Might be the same complex but very unlikely the same apartment. That would be about 8-10 months before we could send the N-400.
  2. What strange requirements may I (the USC) need to keep in mind while waiting for the 33 months to pass so we can submit her N-400? My wife (of 13yrs 2days) got her 10yr GC October 1 and I know she can't leave the country over 6 months or it will count against the 33 months. However, is there any similar restraint for me? I actually just returned from a 5 month trip to the Philippines a few weeks ago because our house/garage and pretty much everything else were destroyed by Super Typhoon Odette in December. She stayed here in San Antonio because we couldn't afford for both to go. Would there be some future problem with her Naturalization because of that trip? What if I'd stayed longer? 🤔 I expect both of us will go back to the Philippines 🇵🇭 in about June of 23 and she'll return under 6 months but would it be a problem if I stayed longer? Do I really need to be physically present in the US to file the N-400? Do I have to attend her interview? TIA
  3. Well, finally. Seems like yours should have gone pretty quickly. Congrats!
  4. Guess it was a real blessing my wife got in to get her B-2 renewed the 27th of February 2020. Even if we then weren't able to leave until September, at least the visa was already there.
  5. A friend of mine is trying to get his wife a B-2. She's a former GC holder so shouldn't be a problem but when he tries to schedule the interview he either gets "no appointments available" or a first available in May or June of 2023. Is there some kind of trick to getting one? He paid for the visa at RCBC and that payment is only good for a year.
  6. My advice would be to try for the B-2 and see. It's not that expensive and doesn't take that long. Build the best 'ties the UK' case you can and see what happens. Being married to an American may work against you. If that doesn't work, do the spousal. She can visit you during that process. Assuming you're approved you can come over and it won't be long before you have a green card. Good for 10 years if married over 2. With that you can travel back and forth as long as you aren't out of the US too long or too much. If you need to be in the UK too much you can go to the embassy and give up the GC. The next time you want to come over you should be nearly 100% approved for a B-2. My advice would be to try for the B-2 and see. It's not that expensive and doesn't take that long.

  7. So I think you are last one in this thread at least of those posting. Did you have your interview yet? Go ok?
  8. I used my wife's official BC for I-130/485. No notary, no problem
  9. She was born in the UK so she isn't a USC until it's proven through the CRBA process. She is only eligible for citizenship. There is no problem with her traveling on a UK passport. Only USC are eligible for a US passport and she is not.
  10. The child is a Brit and not a USC. She is only eligible to be a USC but is not recognized as one until a CRBA is approved. Ergo, if Brits are allowed in the US, both the husband and child can go British passports. His GC should still be good though he may to give some letter of explanation for the long departure. If immigration denies him entry on the GC, he should still be ok on his British passport.
