It is a possibility as the divorce invalidates spousal sponsorship, the issue of having a child is usually taken into consideration when the foreign nationals status is considered as is the reason(s) for the divorce (such as domestic violence).

I married a immigrant and we are in the process of a divorce. We have been married 5 years. Is my spouse entitled to any thing? Will she be deported when the divorce is final?
Yes, it is.
He can be arrested as he is a illegal immigrant and he has got married before waiting for a year aftr getting divorced.
Yes, if your permanent resident status is unconditional.
An immigrant gets divorced and remarried in the same manner that anyone does: by filing a divorce in the appropriate Court and following the Court process to obtain a decree of divorce, and then by having the marriage performed by someone authorized to do so.
For the USA No, you do not have to get divorced. Instead, you can apply for your spouse's green card. The United States supports family values and wants you to be with the person you love!
As a U.S. citizen, you would divorce your immigrant husband in exactly the same way that you would divorce a spouse if he was a citizen. I am not sure from your question, but if your husband's green card status is still pending, then divorcing him during the process will affect this application. If your husband was granted a conditional green card, his permanent residence privileges may be revoked if he is divorced within two years from the date this status was granted.
If you are a US Citizen, legally divorced or widowed, you can request permanent residency for your spouse, regardless of how you gained your citizenship.
You're children are legal citizens, and your ex-spouse may apply for immigrant status.
=An immigrant is NOT an alien.==The immigrant would still be legal because they were married to a US citizen.=
Yes, assuming that the marriage is not for the sole PURPOSE of gaining legal residency.
It depends on how long they were married. Generally if it was less than 2 years then no.
Divorce and ImmigrationIf the immigrant has became a US permanent resident under PR1 then they retain that status after divorce. If the immigrant is under CR status (conditional resident status) They need to file adjustment of status to impermanent residence before the date of their immigration card. The spouse divorcing the CR1 resident could hire a lawyer and submit paperwork to their local USCIS office in cases where they were proven faithlessness from the immigrant, or domestic violence, or fraud from the immigrant. This stuff is marked into the system and does not look good when the CR1 resident when they go for their interview. CR1 status is only good till they file to adjust status to permenet residence and they need their spouse for this. All in all if the resident has become a American Citizen and they have divorced said spouse then they retain that citizenship no matter what.
Marriage certificates are like birth certificates. They are permanent. They do not require renewal.
All you have to do is turn yourselves in to the INS and allow yourselves to be deported. Your marriage will be Annulled for free, instead of the $1000 or so for a divorce.
I am not expert, but i believe that most immigrants (if not all of them) who married a US citizen and, because of that, got a greencard do (yes) get to keep their green card. So ladies (and gentleman) be sure that your immigrant fiance/ee marries you out of love, and not that "card." >>>>The immigrant gets to keep the green card, but cannot apply for citizenship, unless the US citizen was abusive towards the immigrant. The USCIS, however, is very discretionary in these cases and it ultimately depends on the Hearing Officer and how you present the reasons for your divorce and they determine if the marriage was not fraudulent. My advice is that you get divorced after you receive your citizenship, provided the marriage was not fraudulent, becasue if the marriage was a fraud, they can still revoke your citizenship.
You can, but it wouldn't be advisable. The illegal alien can be deported at any time. It may even be impossible for them to get back to the US.
Yes, as long as the protestant agrees to the Catholic Church requirements of permanent commitment and was not previously divorced.
The issue of divorce may in fact be irrelevant. The USCIS/ICE is no longer recognizing all marriages between unlawfully present foreign nationals and US citizens as valid. When the foreign national applies for citizenship immigration officials will do an in depth investigation as to the legality of the marriage. If it is found that the union took place for the sole purpose of the foreign national to gain permanent residency or citizenship, both parties can be charged with a federal felony. The penalty to all involved parties for being convicted of entering into a fraudulent marriage is a maximum of 5 years in a federal facility and a $250,000 fine. The convicted illegal immigrant will be deported to his or her country of origin and permanently barred from reentry into the US. The US citizen will have a permanent criminal record of having commited a felony offense. That aside, naturalized citizenship can be revoked (denaturalized) at any time for many reasons including the divorce of a citizen spouse, therefore a time limit does not really matter.
The Catholic position is that marriage is a sacrament that is irrevocable and permanent. They do allow an annulment in some cases. Divorced catholics are not allowed to remarry in the church, if they did remarry it would have to be in another church denomination or by a civil ceremony as the new marriage would not be recognized by the Catholic Church.
The illegal immigrant should go back to his or her home country and complete the divorce with his or her spouse. Then you should either get married in that country and apply for a spouse visa, or go visit that country and upon returning apply for a fiance visa and get married in the US after the fiance visa is granted.
I dont think the divorce should have any affect, pay $1500 for a lawyer and get your paper work in
It depends. 1. If you petitioned the foreign national as a K-1 fiance and you entered the marriage within 90 days of entry and in good faith, it shouldn't matter that you are divorced. 2. If you married the foreign national and then petitioned for him with an I-130, the adjustment will probably be denied at interview. 3. If you married the foreign national and divorced him before filing anything, he is likewise out of luck, unless you physically abused him or subjected him to extreme cruelty, in which case he might be eligible for relief under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), which also protects men. 4. Depending on his immigration status and educational background, he may have another basis for adjustment to permanent residency (i.e. through an employer or as a self-petitioning extraordinary ability case, etc.). In any case, the foreign national should see an immigration attorney immediately.
The foreign national has already been granted permanent residency therefore a divorce will not affect his or her being granted US citizenship
Divorced can be an adjective such as in the following sentence:They are a divorced couple.You can also use the word as a verb:She divorced him.
