A: Call the immigration service and find out. It's either that or actually get advice from an immigration lawyer. They very rarely answer questions on this forum.

A: If you plan to live in Florida for one year, you may apply for citizenship in Florida. I am assuming that you don't want to abandon your KY residency. However, it is important that if you start the naturalization process in Florida that you complete it the same jurisdiction before you go back to KY. If you are in doubt, you may wish to hire an immigration lawyer to assist you.
