Asked over 3 years ago - OhioFlag
I have been a resident of the U.S for 2 years and 9 months( as it says on my green card.),and I am a spouse of a U.S citizen. We were wondering when to apply. Searched on USCIS.gov and it got me confused. Is it 3 months before my three years or 3 months after.

You can apply 90 days prior to your three year anniversary. You should consult with an attorney as there are specific requirements for proving you are living in marital union with your citizen spouse. Those documentary requirements must be provided to CIS and your spouse must appear for the interview.
Spouses of U.S. citizens who have been in marital union (i.e. living together) for 3 years prior to the naturalization interview may file the N-400 up to 90 days prior to the 3rd anniversary of being granted lawful permanent resident status. The U.S. citizen spouse must have been a USC the entire time. There are also specific requirements for physical presence, continuous residence, moral character, and knowledge of U.S. history and government.
