My husband and I are Australian citizens. We moved here in October 2013. Though we were living together at the time, the original Green Card Lottery application was in his name. By the time it came up we were married, so when we moved from Australia to America he is DV1 I am DV2. We both live in the US, but after 4 years here we are divorcing. What is the effect on my green card and potential citizenship?
Q. " ...we are divorcing. What is the effect on my green card and potential citizenship?" Rest assured, absolutely on 'effect" - zero. Divorce in peace and find a more worthy partner of you.
