Customer Question
I have a question regarding...
I have a question regarding the application to a citizenship through the Spouse of US Citizenship (Part G) and Chapter 4 Spouses of US Citizenship Employed Abroad.
The spouse of a US Citizenship is exempt from continuous residence and physical presence requirements for naturalization.
In the last 3 years, 17 months I was abroad working for a US company and have been in the USA for the last 19 months. The policy talks about this exemption when the US citizen was abroad and the spouse was with the LPR, however, in my case, the LPR was on the assignment abroad and the spouse is the US citizen. Do I qualify for applying to a naturalization today?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
