Question
I passed written/oral USA history/civics test at citizenship interview, however immigration officer has arequirement for evidence to prove contiuous residence in USA during an extended absence for more than sixmonth and less then a year.

Answer
Hi Sharad,

You will need to prove residence in the U.S. during the lengthy absence. This can be showing through filing tax return, maintaining a bank account in the U.S., paying credit card bill or other bills such as utility bills, receiving and responding to correspondence, paying rent, etc. In addition, perhaps you had a specific reason for your extended absence (such as taking care of a sick parent).
