sachinabhyankar Posted October 12, 2021 Report Share Posted October 12, 2021 Hi, My parents got the Greencard approximately 6 years ago. They have stayed in the US for more than a year few times during this 6 years period. There were two occasions where they stayed outside the US for more than 6 months. First time: One of the family members was critically ill. Second Time: Due to COVID, they were stuck outside with no flights. We have been filing taxes for them every single year. I would like to know whether any of the following conditions apply for them to be considered eligible for citizenship. 1. Filing taxes every year even when they overstayed outside. Will this help prove the continuation of stay just like other items (an exception to 6 months rule) 2. Will the letter from the doctor help get an exception for the first time they were outside. 3. Does USCIS consider COVID as an exception for the continuation of stay. Quote Link to comment
