You can apply for U.S. citizenship once you've been a legal permanent resident for 5 yrs.
You must have been living in the U.S. for at least 2 1/2 yrs out of the past 5 yrs.
You will need to add up all your visits abroad for the past five years (April 2008 through April 2013) & make sure they do not total more than 912 days.
