If the husband is a US citizen born in Nigeria and wife is a green card holder born in Nigeria can divorce proceedings continue if she goes to Nigeria to visit for an unspecified amount of time?

Divorce may continue but Green Card status might be lost as you cannot stay indefinitly in Nigeria. Check with INS for anmount of time you can stay out of the US without being penalized and green card revoked.
