Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be the immigration attorney helping you today. You only need to know the dates more or less that you were outside the US for the last 5 years. Unfortunately the US would not have this information. You would have to look for your passports and find the dates there.
The application process takes about 5 months.
Yes once you begin the process you can still travel outside the US but have to return for the interview. There's no problem
Yes, even as an attorney I can tell you You can definitely apply on your own unless you think there is any complication in your case, in which case I advise getting an attorney but it does not sound like there is. If you feel more comfortable with someone looking over your documents before you send just to be safe, I can offer you that but I do not think you need an attorney to represent you.
Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!
