I have question regarding a person obtaining green card through marring a U.S. Citizen. My wife's best friend lives in Queens, New York. She got married to a U.S. citizen back in March 2007. She came to United States in May 2009 with a parmanent 10 years green card. However, after arriving in the U.S., life became very difficult for her because she was abused by her husband. She is a victim of a abusive marriage. Her husband hits her and chokes her almost on a regular basis. In the begining she was scared to tell anyone or call the cops because he always threatend her, but one evening thing got really out of hand and she so scared that she finally had to called the cops and left her home after the cops arrived and went to live with her Aunt. Now,She divorced the guy on the basis of abusive relationship and queens court granted the divorce. As I mentioned above she has a parmanent green card for 10 years after she arrived in the United States, would some how be able to apply for citizenship after 3 years as she went through a abusive marriage?

ditto,

she has to be married to apply for the 3 year citizenship. 3 years of marriage and 3 years of residency, and still be married to the petitioner. since she is divorced she will have to wait 5 years from the date of her GC, 3 months before the 5 years she can apply.

Just to correct you as i have been previously corrected... no, you don't need to be still married to get the 3 year rule. Anyone who ROC'd or whatever based on an abusive relationship with a USC spouse is permitted the 3 year rule even though they're divorced. It's in the INS rules.

In the OP's case, she has her 10 year card and it wasn't based on VAWA and therefore the OP is not eligible for the 3 year rule, and will need to wait 5 years.

her "real husband" will have to wait out the full 5 years before she can sponsor him.
