I need to travel outside USA,my temporary green card is expired.My I-751 case is pending because my divorce has not been final

Asked over 1 year ago - Redondo Beach, CA

I want to travel outside USA.I got 1 year renewal of my temporary green card when I filed for I- 751 based on good faith marriage on October 2011.I got my interview in May 2012 with the IO and she gave me 3 months ..till august 2012 to submit divorce Judgement. But I could not do that because my divorce is still going on,we have no children,my spouse is just dragging the divorce.

My concerns are I want to travel outside and want to come back to USA and do have to file again my I 751 as I have heard nothing from the immigration department.
