I had a question about meeting the continuous residency requirements for filing for citizenship. I received GC approval - Aug 2009. I will complete 30 months of continuous stay in US in Feb 2012. (have not left US for more than 2 weeks that entire time) If I decide to move to India in Feb 2012 for family reasons, and visit the US 3 weeks every six months, so as to not break the 6 month rule, can I apply for citizenship in Aug 2014. (Presuming of course I maintain a house, credit card, bank accounts, auto, license, etc etc) I checked with the law firm that assisted with me with my GC and they said yes- But posting here as I have heard other answers to see if anyone else has had a similar situation. Question 2 is if i do stay on till 2014, when i can expect to complete all the formalities and be able to move to India - 2014 itself or would it involve a wait well into 2015 by the time I actually get the USC. Aprreciate any input/advice.
