Farmington, MI asked in Immigration Law for Michigan

Q: 3 month residency requirement priority to early filling of n-400

I will be filling n-400 soon based on employment, at the 4 year 9 months mark.

I have been residing at the current address of last 6 years. I haven't been much out of the country much either. I am planning to travel out of the country for 2/3 months once my biometric is done. Is it ok to be out for so long after filling n-400 and before the interview ? it will negate 3 month residency requirement ? or that applied only before filing n 400

A: That is not a problem. When you get to your interview, you will just need to notify the officer so that he/she can update your application.
