This is Shadi Al Khateeb. I hold a green card since 01/2013 (got it by lottery for myself, my wife and kids, however, my wife and kids did not enter USA at all so they did not get green cards). Since 01/2013, I made trips outside USA and in only one trip I was outside USA for more that 6 months (but less than a year). I do file taxes each year. I will complete my 30 months of physical residency in March, 2018. 1) Given my calculations are correct, is there any way that I can apply for the naturalization in March + 1 day? 2) If I can apply for naturalization in March +1 day, what are the chances of getting my application approved for the citizenship? 3) Does the situation of my family (Did not enter USA for their green cards) affects the processing of my application? 4) is there any premium processing service for naturalization … read more
