Asked over 2 years ago - Los Angeles, CA

I have just received my 10year greencard thru my husbands petition last December 2011. We have an argument now because he always ask me money because he always go to casino. He is working and me too, we have no children. Can I file a divorce now because I don't want to have trouble because of his casino habit and I dont want to loose all my money because of him. Can Immigration question me and cancel my greencard because I have my 10 yr greencard only last December 2011 and now I will file a divorce. Please help I am confuse.

    Answered . I agree with my colleague, but want to add a caution. You should be aware that USCIS may look into the bona fides of your marriage at the time you apply for naturalization.

    Answered . There is no requirement that you be married for any specific period of
