I got my Green card via marriage, now divorced will i be eligible for Naturalization?

Asked over 1 year ago - Eugene, OR

I was married for 6.5 years and have a wonderful child. The divorce happened almost 5 years ago and since then i have left the country twice once for 10 months. i have not committed any crime other than 1 speeding ticket and 2 parking tickets (i didnt feed the meter on time) what are my chances? Should i even attempt applying for naturalization?
I have seen in some posts that it is not necessary to include speeding ticket as a crime committed is this true?
I will appreciate any response....

    Answered . Then 10 month absence may become an issue. You need to consult with competent counsel before you prematurely file.
