When to apply

Hello

My green card is dated Nov 2007 based on family (asylee thru my mother). I have been in the US since 1999 - came as a visitor and was granted asylum in 2000. I applied for adjustement of status in 2003- but didnt get the green card until 2008 (dated it back one year 2007). I was a really long process and I had to get the my congressman's office involved.

I know that technically I will be eligible to apply for the N400 in November 2012? but because the process took so long- could I try to apply now?

I did leave the US in December 2007 to go to Ivory Coast on a travel document - came back January 2008. Went to Canada end of January and came back Feb. Left again in March for Canada and came back end of June.

I now these trip were not more than 6 months- but because they were before I physically received the green card- should I count them a trip when I applying for the N400?

Also I am thinking about moving to Canada (that's where my husband lives) soon, but I do not want to disrupt my continuous residence- Should I wait until the process is over (meaning applied for N400 next year) or if I were to move let's say the beginning of next year (being that I have been living in the US for more than 30 months). would that disrupt the continuous residence??

Your responses/ help will be appreciated.

Thanks

it doesn't matter how long it takes, what matters is the date you became a LPR. so if you are a resident since 2007, that's what they take into account.

you have to wait.

If you apply before your window opens.

They return everything and deny the application stating you cannot apply until the correct time.
