    Answered . The divorce by itself is not a reason to revoke the legal resident status. That said, USCIS might want to make sure that yours was a good faith marriage and not a marriage entered into just so he could get a green card. He needs to be prepared to explain what happened to your marriage and to prove that it was a good faith marriage. I would advise talking to an immigration attorney to help him be prepared if the needs arises.
