if you have ir1 you have ir1.

If the IR-1 is till valid then you can enter to USA without any problem and because your divorce is in process,you can file to remove the conditions(from conditional 2yrs greencard) right after you get divorced(you don't have to wait for 2 years)..I wish you good luck and hope it helps.

With an IR1 visa, you enter as a permanent resident with no conditions. It's up to you.

so can i tel at poe tht i am divorced and can i change my address because it will be the first time im goin to usa

You don't have to tell them anything. Just answer their questions and I don't think they will ask you if you are happily married or not.

Why don't you guys wait with the divorce until you are in the US?

I don't know, but this whole situation sounds strange to me...

we have been married for long and i never wnt divorce never happy with divorce bt she wants divorce and ofcourse she wouldnt want me to enter in usa thts why i was askin about the questions which can be asked at poe

Generally, there are no serious questions at the POE as long as the paperwork is in order. IR1 visas are generally not a point of concern, since the marriage is considered bona fide when the visa is issued. You can tell the POE folks a new address if you want. They'll need an address to send the green card and social security card. Welcome to the USA.

The answers you got sound like "wishful thinking" and not based on facts.

Your visa was issued with a sole purpose to allow you to enter the USA and to live with your spouse. If you divorce before entering USA, visa is invalid. If you enter the USA using IR-1 visa without the intent to live with your spose, you are misrepresenting yourself.

Immigration officer at POE suppose to verify if the reason that the visa was issued still exists, or in words of IO manual Inspecting New Immigrant Apllicants: "you will need to insure that either a qualifying relationship or offer of employment continue to exist."

John,

don't you worry about this situation

your marriage is already more than 2 years and thats why it is considered legimate and bonafide...and its your personal problems and life,its not your liability to let INS know that you are in process of divorce,thats your life.things were different if you were married less than 2 yrs(cr-1).welcome to USA and you can change your address whenever and wherever you want.God Bless you and Good luck.
