How Can I Protect My Immigration Status If I am Going Through a Divorce From My U.S. Citizen Spouse?

Going through a divorce from your U.S. citizen spouse can impact your immigration status, especially if you obtained your green card based on the marriage. However, there are steps you can take to protect your immigration status during and after the divorce process.

The first step is to seek guidance from our experienced immigration attorney as soon as possible. We can assess your situation, explain your rights and options, and provide personalized advice based on your circumstances. The legal immigration solution may differ for each marriage and its impending divorce.

Generally speaking, you can take the following steps to protect your immigration status during a divorce:

  • Maintain Legal Status

While the divorce is pending, you must maintain lawful immigration status. This may include maintaining valid documentation, such as your green card or other immigration documents, and complying with all immigration laws and regulations.

  • Consider Alternative Immigration Options

If your green card was based on your marriage to a U.S. citizen and you divorce before you obtain permanent resident status—before the expiration of the conditional green card—you may still be eligible for other immigration options.

Our skilled immigration attorney can help you evaluate alternative pathways to legal status.

  • Document Your Relationship

Gather evidence to demonstrate the bona fide nature of your marriage, especially if you face challenges regarding its validity during the divorce proceedings. This may include documents such as joint bank account statements, lease agreements, utility bills, photos, and affidavits from family and friends.

  • Consider Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Protections

If you are a victim of domestic violence or abuse by your U.S. citizen spouse, you may be eligible to self-petition for immigration benefits under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) provisions. VAWA allows certain abused spouses, children, and parents of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to petition for immigration relief without the abuser’s assistance or knowledge.

  • Update U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on Changes in Marital Status

If you have a pending immigration application or petition, such as an adjustment of status application based on marriage, notify USCIS as soon as possible of any change in your marital status. Failure to update USCIS about changes in circumstances could affect the outcome of your immigration case.

  • Maintain Records

Keep copies of all relevant documents, including divorce decrees, court orders, and communications with USCIS or immigration authorities, for your records.

Navigating a divorce while also dealing with immigration issues can be complex and challenging. Our knowledgeable immigration attorney can help you understand your rights, protect your immigration status, and explore options for securing your legal status in the United States.
