My husband is scheduled to become a US citizen in a couple weeks at the Eastern District of New York, in downtown Brooklyn. It's a weekday and we've been told to appear by 8:30 am. I understand that it will probably last until noon. Have you been through this process, and can you help me figure out some logistics? [more inside]

I'm 25 and a Permament Resident of the United States. I want to apply (and am eligible) for citizenship. Stupidly, I neglected to register for Selective Service until now.

Can I apply for citizenship, or will I not have the requisite five years of good moral character, since I haven't registered until very recently?
My Boss' boss came by my cube with an 'assignment'. My boss (who I like) becomes a naturalized citizen tomorrow, and, conveniently enough, will be out of the office for most of the afternoon.
