Yes, you can divorce your wife after three years. If your wife has been granted unconditional residency then her green card will not be affected after you have divorced. It will continue to be valid and it will not be expired because couples who have been married for more than two years can be granted unconditional residency. If this is the case, after you get divorced, you should inform your wife that she will need to renew her green card every 10 years and they should still keep to the same residency requirements in the United States.
There are certain restrictions and requirements that need to be kept when being granted a green card. For example, a person will not be granted permanent residence until they are married. Until then, they can apply for a K-1 fiancés visa which states that the couple must marry within 90 days of the date the immigrant entered America and the visa was activated. Also, they are not permitted to leave the country without adjusting their status or applying for advanced parole. A K-3 visa lasts for two years and allows the holder to leave and return to the United States without adjusting the status. However, they cannot work within the US unless they adjust their status or receive an Employment Authorization Document.
A conditional residency refers to those who have entered the US on a K-1 visa or have been married to a US citizen for under two years. This status only works if the relationship is genuine and remains intact, so if a couple choose to divorce in the first two years, they may struggle in getting the conditions removed.
Hi I was marrige last three years ago and come here 30 jan2009.after reah I recived my 2 year greencard.now my wife want to .divorce me in bank with the front of notary public.I want to know what will happen with my greencard
Sunday is correct about the difference between permanent residence (documented by having a "green card") and citizenship. If the purpose of the marriage was to obtain a green card for the wife, then the U.S. Government would consider the marriage a fraud, and your friend's wife would not be able to keep her green card. In fact, your friend might be subject to criminal charges if the Government investigates and can show that the purpose of the marriage was most probably for the wife to obtain a green card. However, if your friend and his wife have been living together as husband and wife for the three years, it might be difficult for the Government to adequately prove.
I have a green card for almost 5 years and wanted to get divorce and want become a usa citizen what I do? I was married for 14 years.
Immigration laws change all the time. There is a time limit to the marriage. I suggest you to see an immigration attorney for better info. Try not to mention the arrangement of the marriage, it's a crime to marriage for this reason even if it is for the best intentions. She most likely keep her card. And about her citizenship is a process she has to do in her own and she is eligible to apply after 5 years of being a permanent resident. Make sure if you see legal help that the attorney is recognized in immigration law do not see a notary public.
I m marry with my husband for 2 years and 5 months and now he got his green card on April 6 on April 14 we had a simple argument he called the police on me for no reason therefor my families and my friends are so angry because the say that he was not marry me for love , but for the green card and also when the police arrived after I explain to the police why we were argue the police tell me that good night have a pleasant night mam so whit you guys think ?
Hmmm. A green Card is a U.S. Thing, I think. It allows permanent residence status - not citizenship. Citizenship requires another step - after 7-years of permanent residence status with no "problems". I don't think there is a citizenship to "keep" in this case. I don't think she will keep the green card either. This is just a blurt and may be from outdated info. Better to check with an official government representative.
One girls get marry to the us citizen boy and came to usa now she wants to give divorce because of the they both don't have chemistry match . Girls has 2 yrs green card not more then ,how can see live more in usa .which is the process to live and change visa status , how can she be permanent green card holder
Assuming this is the United States of America; yes she would be able to keep her Green Card because in the USA, once married and you become a citizen by the marriage to an American Citizen; your citizenship does not void due to divorce.
