A: They will not process your naturalization until your removal of condition is finalized and generally you can only apply for the removal until 90 days before the two years are up

A: You do need to have the conditions removed, but you can do so concurrently with a citizenship application. Go ahead and make the application and then call the 800 number to see if they will consolidate once you get your receipt for the 751.
