I have not received a decision on my N-400 application since my interview in September 2011. Hopefully someone can advise me.

Asked over 1 year ago - Fort Lauderdale, FL

I recently found out that there was an issue with my application. I was issued a conditional green card. My wife and I applied to take the conditions off and it was done without a second interview. We then divorced and we seemed to have accidentally put on the application to remove conditions that we were still living together but we were separated. I obtained my green card in 2004 and we did not divorce till 2007. I went in for a quick interview and confirmed all the dates and the officer said that it's good that i did not deny anything but the issue was that the original application was not correct. Has anyone come across this issue and if so what is typically the result. Could my green card be taken away and can my N-400 be denied? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Answered . First of all only a judge can take your green card away therefore you could possibly be referred to immigration court. The good thing is you were honest about the misstatement on the application. They could possibly ask you to provide proof that you were in fact living together at the time of the filing the I-751 through a request for evidence on the N-400. If this happens you should hire an attorney to write a brief along with the response to the request for evidence. Good luck!
