I just got my 10-year- Green card from marriage to my US citizen husband today 10/21. After long months of arguments, misunderstandings and all that, I decided to file for divorce. Can this affect my application for citizenship? And what else do I need from my (future - ex) husband in order to be naturalized?
You won't be able to file under the 3 year rule (spouses of US citizens) but you can still file after 4 years and 9 months of being a permanent resident. However, your immediate divorce after the the approval of your permanent green card may raise some suspicion and questions during your naturalization interview.
