Is it a requirement to file the form N-470 if I work for U.S government abroad such as a U.S embassy to retain my green card and apply for citizenship few years later? I've not lived in U.S for 12 straight months in U.S so I want be able to answer as Yes for #12 on form N-470
It is not required but the fact that you have been out 12 months will reset your clock. Furthermore you should re-enter as soon as possible in order not to abandon your green card. Contact a US immigration attorney for strategy assistance.
