His response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
That is correct and this of course assumes that you have not abandoned your green card by staying out of the country for more than one year.
If you already qualify for applying for citizenship and can meet the physical presence and good moral character requirement and are literate in English, then my advise to you would be to fi,e for naturalization rather than waste your money to pay theI-90 application fee.
