I married a deadbeat. I am about to remove conditions on my 2 year green card. My husband hid the fact that he was in $30,000 credit card debt acquired before marriage, based on that we cannot have anything cards together. When I found out I took over all the bills in the home so he could pay his bills, while taking care of my two kids before marriage. He has cheated on me have proof (STD). He has now stop paying his credit card bills still not contributing to the home and I think he is cheating again. IF I GET DIVORCE SAY 9MTHs after removing condition how will this affect me when I apply for citizenship. Don't know if I can do this for much longer. I have constant head ache. what can I do to prove to immigration that i was not at fault for the break down of the marriage.
No. Once the conditions are removed or even before in some cases you don't have to stay for purposes of immigration but marital counseling is an option for family purposes.

I appreciate your sad situation and would say that as long as you have entered into a bona fide (genuine and authentic marriage initially) and due to the drastic circumstances as you cited such as registered infidelities and sexually communicable diseases’, which in my humble opinion, is more than enough to seek a divorce based on irreconcilable differences, you should be absolutely fine and the whole ordeal will not affect your eventual naturalization, however you will need to incur four years and nine months before you may qualify for naturalization.
