Thread: BronzeLady please advise: Special Time Accommodation to apply for Citizenship?

  1. #1
    Dear BronzeLady, or anyone with firm knowledge about this: I just received my GC this month. I applied, along with my four adult children and wife, for AOS based on Registry since we had lived undocumented in the US since 1966. Is it possible to apply for Naturalization sooner than five years, because we have lived here during 38 continuous years? How soon can we apply for U.S. Citizenship? We have owned our quite successful business for 16 years, we have owned our home since 1973, and have never had any problems with the law. We are eager to participate with our vote in the political processes of our adopted country, the United States of America. So far we have only been in the sidelines. Thank you.

    There are waivers for the five years residence requirement, serving in the US military for example, but the time you spent illegally in the US does not add up for any "special time accommodation". You have to wait for five years from the date you were granted LPR status in order to file for naturalization.

    Thank you 'Old Man'! We wish it could be sooner, but our objective of becoming US citizens is well worth the wait. At present we are counting our blessings to have granted our Legal Permanent Resident status.

    Congratulations on your LPR status and welcome to your first steps of becoming a citizen. The date of your adjustment to LPR is slightly coded on the back of your card. It may be a few months or a few yrs. before you actually receive the card. Find out where you stand in order to apply for U.S. citizenship, which is 3 months before you reach your 5th anniversary. Glad to see you want to participate in the voting process!

    Pandora: Will you please see Sec 316 INA(1) and let us know about your view on the above please.
