The marriage happened in Utah and the divorce in California. The divorced are already in process (also would like to know if the ADR form does makes it faster and cheap) and am not sure if the immigrant has a green card, but I know you have to wait 2 years to get the homeland approval, which wasn't done.
The citizen needs to notify immigration that the couple is going through a divorce. The immigrant will have a green card. It is a temporary green card pending the two year review. Once you have notified immigration they will instruct you on the next steps regarding the immigrants green card.
It really depends on what stage of the immigration process you are in. Did you have an immigration attorney before? If you want to know about the immigration aspect, you should consult an immigration attorney. Some people assume that simply marrying a citizen gives them status. This is not the case.
