Hello Everyone,
I need some simple explanation on this matter. I am a green card holder since 2014 and my normal time to file citizenship application should be 2019 based on 5 years rules. I have lived in the US continuously for about 14 months so far,I recently took a temporary assignment duty overseas for which would last about 1 years and months.
PS. I have obtained re-entry permit and I will also be returning to the US every 3 months during the term of my assignment. I have and will be paying taxes. I would live about 36 months when the time arrive to apply but there will be some frequent travels.
Now here are my questions:
1. Does this delay my citizenship?
2.Will I still be eligible to apply in 2019 if I never stay more than 3 months at a time?
I maintain US address and have 100% access to it and have credit line and phone to pay every months.
I will really appreciate your help. Thank you for your time

Here you go. You need this form and you have to continue renewing your re-entry permit and must keep ties to the US. If you were outside of the US for 14 months continuously, that means you are probably a federal/government employee or in the military. Maybe not. Just guessing.
Keep asking questions. One of us will chime in. BUT google is your best friend.

N-470, Application to Preserve Residence for Naturalization Purposes
Use this form if you are a lawful permanent resident who must leave the United States for a period of one year or longer for certain employment purposes and you want to preserve your status as an immigrant in order to pursue naturalization.
Certain employment purposes includes working for:
The U.S. government.
An entity that is currently recognized by USCIS as an American institution of research.
An American firm or corporation (or a subsidiary of that firm or corporation) where you engage in developing the foreign trade and commerce of the United States.
An American firm or corporation engaged in the development of foreign trade and commerce of the United States, where you protect the property rights outside the United States of that American firm or corporation.
A public international organization of which the United States is a member by treaty or statute.
A denomination or mission that has a bona fide organization in the United States in which you perform ministerial or priestly functions or your sole role is a clergyman or clergywoman, missionary, brother, nun, or sister.
