You may apply no earlier than 90 days prior to the 5 year anniversary of becoming a permanent resident. From what you are saying you've got approximately 6 more months before you can submit the N-400.

Here is the USCIS Guide to Naturalization >>>> http://www.uscis.gov/files/article/M-476.pdf

Ha, wonder if your mom's attorney can pass a literacy test, apparently he/she can't read. And 90 before your fifth LOP anniversary means 90 days, one day early and your application will be rejected.

But was is your rush? After a lush federal job? Even more critical is joining our military, but they will take you as a LPR, more contradictions in our government. If your foreign passport is about to expire, renew it anyway, may still need it to visit your home country. Next election is well over a year away, but looking at the list of potential candidates, another bunch of idiots not to vote for.

If you obtained it through marriage, you are still married to that same US citizen and are still living together, then you fall under the 3 year rule and not the 5. Since you didn't mention, everyone is going to assume 5 years (through a job, lottery, etc...).

If you can answer candaian_wife's question which was the first post, then your question can be answered.
