Shupe Dhawan – US Citizenship Video #5 – Physical Presence and Continuous Residence


My name is Neil Dhawan partner at Shupe
Dhawan. Naturalization as many requirements that must be met but people
get most confused by these two one physical presence and continuous
residents as an applicant for naturalization you must ensure you meet
both the physical presence and continuous residence requirement for the
statutory three or five-year period before applying for naturalization to
ensure compliance with the continuous residence requirement an applicant must
have resided in the United States for three or five years depending on the grounds for
applying also you must not have left the United States for a period of more than
six months if you did leave the country for more than six months while having a
lawful permanent resident card your continuous presence may have been
disrupted and you will have to prove continuous residence so it’s extremely
important that you consult with us before you file an application to ensure
compliance with the physical presence requirement and applicant must be
physically present for 18 months within a three year period or 30 months within
a five-year period depending upon which application you’re filing there are
exceptions obviously for religious workers active members of the military people
