Green Card divorce

Flushing, NY |

What happens if after getting your green card you divorce your wife before the 2 years and marry another woman?

  1. If you have a conditional green card you are going to need to apply for a "good faith" marriage exception to remove the conditions. You will need an attorney to process this successfully, my firm handles such cases in NY.

  2. You really need to consult an Immigration attorney.


  3. From a divorce perspective you're treated like anyone else. From an immigration perspective you must demonstrate that the marriage was not for immigration purposes.
