Are lawful permanent residents subject to the same divorce laws as US Citizens if the marriage took place outside of the United States long before coming to the States and also under different legislative rules?
I am a LPR moving towards a divorce. Can my spouse cause me more damage if we were to get divorced after becoming citizens or does it not matter at all?
I do not fully understand your question. If you are a conditional green card holder, you have a green card only good for 2 years, a divorce could pose a substantial obstacle to you obtaining your green card that is good for 10 years. My best advice is to consult an immigration attorney.
It does not matter in terms of the potential issues in the divorce case itself. If there are immigration issues, this may need to be addressed with an immigration attorney. That said, if you're looking to file for divorce, you're best advise to schedule a consultation with a NYC Divorce attorney.
