, thanks my question. 1- How is the Physical Presence requirement in a naturalization application proved or supported? 2- Can a naturalization application be approved even if the physical presence proof is rather shaky? Background: I'm a US Permanent Resident and have been past 6 years. I am about to start the process of applying citizenship but need guidance on the physical residence requirement. Although I have been continuously resident in the US, I am not sure I meet the 30 month physical presence as I've been travelling to Europe of that time- marital reasons- and only strong ties to the US is maintaining my bank accounts, filing my taxes and the fact that my parents and 5 siblings are all US citizens/live in the States.My two children, aged 0 and 6 were born in Europe.
