I got married to my ex husband for good in 2010. Because I was pregnant with his child. I got my green card in 2010 December. But after my miscarriage, our relationship became sour. Still, I took my ex husband to my country to introduce him to my family and friends. I have many pictures of that.
I found that he had so many bad financial habit which I didn't know before I got married to him. For instance, he doesn't pay any bills on time, etc... After so many fights and arguing we decided to get divorce.
I haven't file a waiver to remove the conditions of joint filing yet but I thought it is fine to travel outside of the states so I went to my country but when I came back, the officer told me that mine is no longer valid. They took my passport and green card at the airport. I need help.I received my conditional green card in 2010 December. We got divorced in 2011 August. Mine will expires in 2012 December. The officer at the airport has set up the interview? at U.S Customs and Boarder Protection on June 21 2012. And the form(Order to Appear Deferred Inspection) says I only can stay here by June 21 2012 for now. In addition, I don't have any arrested records or convictions. I have one traffic ticket though. I just went to my country for 11days. The CBP officers in Detroit said, my green card is not valid any more since I got divorced on "conditional" one.
If you were granted conditional residency in December 2010, your green card should be valid until Decembber 2012; you can file a petition to remove the condition with wiaver of the joint petition if you are divorced. The petition to remove the condition can be filed only within 90 days prior to the expiration of your status.
Did you ask the offcicer why they confiscated your green card and passport and why you were placed in deferred inspection? Did you have any arrests or convictions? How long were you outside the U.S.? Was it more than 6 months?

We really don't have enough facts to work with her. It would appear
that you were granted conditional permanent residence for two years
based upon your marriage. During the last 90 days of that period you
were required to file a petition with USCIS to remove the conditional
basis of your residence. If you did not do so then your status as a
permanent resident is automatically terminated. We don't have a timely
to know what happened, but simply traveling outside the United States
during your conditional residence period would not be a problem unless
you failed to timely file and your status was terminated.
Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review the
specific facts of your case and advise you how best to proceed.
