Do I have to apply for new green card first?
Is the four months past expiration of green card a probrem?
Generally you must be a permanent resident for 5 years before becoming eligible for naturalization. There are some exceptions however. The expiration of your green card does not mean that your permanent residency status has expired. So you should be able to apply for naturalization without having to renew your green card.
