Hi. I'm new here. I'm a mother of 3. My friend suggested me to visit this website for more information on naturalization process! We live in US but hubby is getting ready for going on his oversea assignment[non-military] in 2 weeks. The kids and I will be stuck in US until my citizenship is approved! Wish me luck please! :)

Thank you all! I spent most of my Friday on the phone with USCIS. Not much help/info from them. But one of the reps recommended me to set up an appointment with INFOPASS, which I did. I'll see the officer in person on 10/14 to discuss the matter. At least to give it a try! Hopefully, I can get some clearer info/help/answer.
