If a Mexican citizen marries a US Citizen the Mexican citizen has a green card and is married for twelve years with a child what happens if there is a divorce?
Nothing, you only have to be married for 3 years before they can revoke a green card for such a matter. And they don't even revoke a green card just for that, they have to prove that the marriage was entered unlawfully and not for the right reasons. The government is not going to force you to stay married to someone just to keep their green card active

Asked in Citizenship and Marriage
Can a non citizen divorce a US citizen and stay in the US?
Yes I been divorced for over 10 years now I renewed my visa several years ago . As long as you have job its no problem. Yes, with a caveat. If you have married a US citizen, and been granted a Permanent Resident Visa due to that marriage, you must wait 2 years before divorcing the US citizen, or your Permanent Residency may be revoked. It will not automatically be revoked, but you will have to show that your divorce was not reasonably avoidable or your fault to retain your visa. Examples of divorce where you will be able to retain your visa: spousal abuse, marriage fraud by your partner, or death of your spouse (not at your hands), or a nebulous "good faith" marriage. The latter is hard to define, and not likely to be granted as an exception. The long and short of it is this: if you have been married for longer than two years (including any time you were married before obtaining a US permanent resident visa), then you can divorce without fear of losing your green card. If you were married for less than two years, then there is a possibility that it will be revoked and you will have to find another way to obtain a visa.
Married to a us citizen how long after becoming a citizen myself can one file for a divorce?
Once you become a citizen, you can file for divorce at any time. But in order to even apply for citizenship if you are on a marriage green card, you have to have been married for 3 years and you and your spouse would have to have petitioned to remove your conditional resident status within 90 days of your second wedding anniversary. This is to prove that you didn't get married to evade immigrations laws.
