These are my trip details in past 5 years

2012 365 days(Stayed Full Year)

2011 230 days (Stayed from Jun)

2010 150 days (stayed Till May)

2009 365 days(Stayed Full Year)

 

I was out of the country for 11 months from 2010 Jun to 2011 May without a renetry permit.

 

Does it affect my continuity, i think physical presence of 2 1/2 yrs req i meet right

please consult a lawyer.

 

if you are out for more than 180 days in the past 5 years, you did not satisfy the continuous residence requirement (some exception applies like N-470).

Hi Venkat,


 


I am kind of in the similar situation as you are, however I got my GC in Feb 2012 when I was out of US. I came to US on Apr 1st 2012 and stayed till March 1st 2014 and they I went out of US from then on and planning to go back on Sep 10th for a month or so.


 


1. If i stay in US like a month or 2 and go out for the next 5 months till i reach my 5 years from the date i received GC and till I stayed 30 months in USA altogether, will i be able to apply for naturalization?


2. I want to know will this break the continuous residency requirement for the naturalization?


 


I hope you can help me with this.


 


Appreciate your help.


 


Thanks.
