You can apply for naturalization if you are confident that you are eligible. It is not always in the best interest of a permanent resident to apply to become a naturalized …citizen. When you apply for naturalization, you are giving the government information that may result not only in denial of your citizenship application but may also place you in removal (deportation) proceedings. For example, if you were outside of the United States for a long period of time, you may have abandoned your permanent residency without knowing it. Or you might have a criminal history that makes you deportable, in which case you would definitely want to avoid applying for citizenship. It is always best to consult with a citizenship attorney before filing your naturalization application.
