Thank you for your response! What should I stand for when I'll need to renew the green card after 2 years will pass? Thank you

I am sorry what do you mean "what should I stand for"?

I'm sorry I didn't formulate my question correctly, anyway I meant to say after I apply for the green card renewal and if I get approved, when am I able to apply for citizenship? will it be in a year after receiving a permanent green card just like it would be if still in marriage or not? Thank you

no, 5 years from the time you first received your green card. But you would have to first overcome the hurdle of the I-751 (petition to remove the conditions on green card)
