Should I submit the N-336 or reapply?

Asked 10 months ago - Leesburg, VA

My husband and me previously resided in the State of Florida for the last four years, and then moved to the State of Virginia in May, 2013. I have filed my application for naturalization in June, 2013 and USCIS denied it since I resided in the State of Virginia less than 3 months prior to filing my application. I didn’t know about 3 month period that you have to reside before filing application for naturalization. Now, we are in September, 2013 and I was wondering if I should submit the N-336 or reapply for naturalization?

    Answered . re-apply as USCIS was correct to deny as you did not meet the 90 day state residence requirement.

    Or, consider meeting with an attorney to have your case 'screened' prior to filing.
