Once divorced, you will be able to invoke one of the many exceptions that exist for the joint filing requirement. But can only do so once divorced. In the meantime, it's very important to file the I-751 one before Your green card expires. It is imperative that you hire a skilled immigration lawyer in your area to assist you with the process.
