Re entry and Four years and one day rule
Hello, so i had my interview today. I passed the civics test but the officer could not come up with a decision yet since i have not been physically present in the US for 5 straight years because i was away for 1 year and 9 months vis a re entry.

Since i came back from my absence, i have been year in the US for four years and 6 months. The officer said she will ask her immigration lawyer to decide on what to do with my case. I know that i need to wait for 5 years before applying given the 4 years and a day rule, i thought it should be fine. I wonder how long it takes until the officer will tell me what else they need.

Has anyone experienced this? Thank you.
