    Hello,

    I am about to file an I-751 with my wife. We have been married for almost 3 years now. We are coming up on the 90 day aniversary of her getting her TEMP PERM RESIDENT card.

    However in the time since we filed, we have both been living over-seas almost full time because of my job. We have been back to the US several times, and have never been outside of the US for more than the one year time period.

    Currently, my wife's address with the USCIS is her Mother's house in California.

    I am wondering if we should list our current address as our overseas address, or the california address (I have been filing Wisconsin taxes since that is where my mailing address is).

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Spy, Right, oops forgot that part of it.....resident in same district, continuous residence and happily ever after with spouse.

    It's a total of 5 years from first becoming a LPR that you have to wait to apply for Citz if you are no longer with spouse eh?

    Not that it matters but you can actually apply on February 27, 2005 (90 days before May 28). That's only 40 days from now!

    Assuming, of course, you meet all of the other eligibility requirements. Resident in the same district for 3 months, meet the continuous residence requirement, living with and still married to spouse, etc.

    Hey Julie and Sphyrapicus, I just checked my immigration stuff from when I was approved for AOS and the INS officer wrote down on a little sticky note for me that since I had become a LPR on May 28, 2002, I was eligible to apply 90 days before May 28, 2005, which works out that I can apply for citizenship on February 28, 2005.
    Like Spy said, The clock starts from the moment one becomes a PR. I guess this is why it seems like it is so soon that one can apply for their citizenship.

    Nope. A conditional PR is the same as a regular PR. The clock starts from the moment one becomes a PR (conditional or not).

    in other words sphyrapicus, if someone is a PR since 2003, and has never been a conditional resident, and has been married to USC for more than 4 years, does that change anything about the N-400 timing?
    Thanks,
    julie

    is the time period any different for those who were approved for permanent residence from the first interview?

    And many of us have applied for N400 before the I751 is adjudicated. In many cases, it may force the issue to get the I751 taken care of.

    The citizenship clock starts the moment you are granted conditional permanent resident status.

    Because the processing takes almost a year most of I751 applicants become 3 years residents at the date of approval. Hope it helps.

    Patti, how come you're eligible for N-400 so fast? isn't I-751 to remove barriers after 2 years of marriage? and if that is so, don't you have to have 3 years of permanent residence in order to be eligible to apply for N-400? I am a bit confused. Thanks,
    Julie
