Application for Naturalization

I have a question regarding naturalization filing period. I will complete my 5 years in US in June. Can I only file after 5 years or I can submit my documents after 4 years 9 months only.

You are allowed to submit Naturalization application any time after 90 days following the 5th year from your green card approval.

I am a US citizen and spouse on B-2 visa

I am US citizen and my wife is here on B-2 visa, her I-94 just expired, applied for extension, denied. Can I file I-130 and 485 for her now and can she wait here for her GC legally without leaving the country?

You can file I-130 and I-485, but she must not travel outside USA until she gets her green card.
