I'd like to know which tense I should put after "once" (or as soon as) in these examples

I will wash the dishes as soon as she is/ will have finished / has finished

I would have washed the dishes once she had finished / was finished

I will do it once you have gotten / got / get out of this house!


Formally, "has finished," "had finished," and "have gotten."

Colloquially, you'd be likely to hear "is finished," "was finished," and "get."

  • Or "have got" in British English. – Kate Bunting Jan 17 '20 at 9:37
