I am a Green Card holder since 1998. I went thru a very compicated divorce and was convicted of a 3rd degree misdemeanor (telephone harrassment) in Colorado and completed six months probation for that back in 2004. Can i apply for citizenship?
You certainly can apply and this isn't the type of offense that would typically be an issue in a naturalization petition. You must show that you have good moral character and I don't think this is the type of crime that would call that into serious question. You will be required to provide a certified copy of the court transcript related to the conviction. I have represented clients with criminal convictions that are far worse than this and they have been successful. Hope this helps.
