I have submitted 485 and am waiting for the card. However, my wife and I divorced now. The submission of 485 was before our divorce. We have married for 3+ years and have a son. Will my application be affected? I applied green card through her, who is a permanent resident.
Your application may be affected, and you should discuss the specifics directly with an attorney. The timing of various events (such as the date of your interview, date of filing for divorce, receipt of any approval notice, finality of divorce, etc.) are important in your case, and it is not clear from your question when those took place (if at all). Good luck!
Did you already have an interview? If you did not, your application will definitely be affected. However, there could be options available to you enabling you to adjust status. You really need to retain an immigration attorney to review your case and advise you accordingly. Good Luck.
Your application will be denied if you are no longer married. Given the importance of your situation, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible, whether myself or one of my colleagues.
