    Hi Swiss,

    Yes, one needs to have legal permanent residency to file for US citizenship.

    Actually, if you were living in the UK, and just "visited" here, you have actually lost your LPR status. To maintain the LPR status you must have your unreliquished residence in the U.S. and spend at least six months physical presence in the U.S.

    It is a common misperception that an LPR can come to the U.S. once or twice a year to "maintain" their status. Not true. You must acutally live here and have physical presence.

    Any application for citizenship will expose the fact that you were living outside the U.S., which will result in you loosing your LPR status.

    Unless you apply for citizenship in the Sacramento District of USCIS, which discourages its officers from finding fraud.

    Can you file for citizenship without permanent residency, although having being here for more than 5 years or is permanent residency a prerequisite ?
