The visa doesn't change merely because of a divorce.

Sure, she can use it to come to the US for a SHORT VACATION.

Thanks for your quick response, she wants to visit us for 10 days or so.


Nothing happens to the B2 after divorce, not dependent on her marriage. She would need to enter with the intent to visit for a short time, e.g. 10 days as you say, is fine.

There is no connection between marriage and B2 visa unless the marriage was used to show ties.
