Permanent status before divorce?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

I would like to know if the fiance came to the US on K1 visa then getting married but after awhile the couple didn't understand each other and want both to divorce. They both agreed to wait till the husband get his permanet legal status before divorce so he won't have any problem with immigration.

So when is the best and right way to get a divorce? after the 2 years GC or 10 years GC or the citizenship? And how long does all of it take?

Thank you.

The 'best' time to take a divorce is when you two know that the relationship isn't working out and want to end it. A GC is given on the basis that the beneficiary came to the US and you both married in good faith and the marriage is bonafide. It is tricky though -

Did you both marry without any wrong intentions and then the marriage didn't work out before you applied for Adjustment of status? How long have you been married? What stage of immigration are you at (AOS or Removal of conditions etc). Based on your situation a solution can be provided.

There are a lot of factors that experienced members here will need to know before somebody can give you an answer.

However, to fake a bonafide relationship just to get GC is fraud, in my opinion.

The best time is when you did everything to make the relationship work and did'nt.2 yrs. is too long to wait for a bad marriage. You might be crazy then if you wait that long..lol

How long has the marriage lasted? It takes awhile to make the marriage work especially when there are cultural differences. Don't try to commit fraud to get the GC - the penalties are enormous!

If both parties decide to wait to terminate the marriage so that the alien could acquire permanent residence, that does not necessarily equate to fraud.
