If you're talking about a regular marriage, filing for divorce should have nothing to do with a green card. If you're talking about getting married just to obtain the green card, you need to be married for four years with regular and unscheduled visits from the government.
I believe you must be married for a minimum of 2 years in order to apply for Permanent Residency.
Your Green Card is valid even if you get the divorce. However, you cannot apply for citizenship within three years of obtaining the Green Card, but you have to wait for five years. You can also call 1 800 375 5283 and speak with a customer service represetntative about this.
Depends upon what visa you used to enter the country. If it is marriage-related (spouse or fiance), you cannot get a divorce for generally three years or you will be suspected of fraud in obtaining your visa.
Yes, they can.
No, the divorce alone is not a reason for deportation.
Yes, your divorce will not affect your status. However, the divorce may affect (or delay) your chances of obtaining citizenship
You can only divorce from your marriage in the US if so. To divorce from a marriage in Brazil, even though you are legal citizens in the US, you must do it in Brazil. Go to a consulate or embassy for more information.
The process of obtaining a Green Card in the USA involves applying through the US Citizen and Immigration Services. One can apply through reasons of family, work or residence.
If you are married, you can apply for divorce.
You will have to file for divorce in the same country where you got married.
Yes, if the marriage was made in bad faith.
Right after the marriage , the thai immigrant should apply immediately for a green card , he/she has the right to do so, and then after obtaining green card she/he can stay in US whatever he want , even after getting a divorce. Your question is ambiguous, be more specifically . What's your status ? Have you applied for a green card yet? If you get divorce, before you got some legal documents you can be deported. Call a lawyer, he can help you.
Yes, if you have a green card then you can stay in the country.
can adependat green card be cancelled after divorce? I am Iranian man .my wife is us citizen we married 3 years ago in Iran. Now a I am green card holder (from date 15th April 2007 with 10 years validity)now we want to separate I want to knowk what happen for my green card and citizenship
It depends on how long you were married and the reason for the divorce.
The same way you divorce anybody else in that country. Talk to your lawyer.
If the marriage was purely for the purpose of obtaining a Green card and if the USCIS comes to know of it, then the Green card will be revoked. The person will get to lose the legal permanent resident status.
I'm a u.s. citizen and i got married in Iran under the Islamic law, my wife now has a green card and we live in California where she has filed for divorce, can i take her back to Iran and get a divorce or can she divorce me here and take my money?
If you are a Green Card holder and living in Texas, you do not have to go back to Germany to get divorced. You can legally get divorced in Texas.
Normally you have to file the I-751 form jointly. As you are divorced, you can apply for a waiver for joint filing. But you should be able to prove that you entered the marriage with honesty and good intentions and not just for the sake of getting a green card.
If the legal process can be completed prior to the expiration of the green card, yes. However, NOT having the process completed will NOT ensure the green card holder their stay will be extended.
Do you care? You want a divorce don't you.
Not exactly. Being unfaithful is grounds for divorce, and if they divorce you then you could lose it.
A permanent resident who lives in Boston can go to Florida without any problem. It would make common sense that they carry the Green Card with them when they travel.
