14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

Does anyone know that if we get a divorce after removing the condition on Permanent Resident CARD(basically after getting 10 year GC) , is it going to have a trouble when we apply for our citizenship?

Is it make any trouble when we marry with other girl from outside of United States and need to put an immigration file for her?

If you divorce you have to wait 5 years to become a US citizen instead of 3.

No problem at all, however add 2 years to the residency time required before applying for citizenship.

N-400 can be filed at 3 years of residency if married to the same US citizen for the 3 years, and at 5 years of residency if not..

Moving this to the citizenship forum, because your question is about citizenship..

Your not even divorced yet and already your looking at marrying a girl from outside of the United States and putting in an immigration file for her? Nothing looks more suspicious than that now does it? :bonk:

Thanks for your reply

I am just asking a question for everything that brought up in my mind.

We already file for our divorce case and waiting for court date.

Now the only thing i would concern about when i file for my citizen ship after 5 years, do the immigration officer would create any problem for me or not?

And after getting my citizen ship what would be the problem for my future wife if she will stay outside of the united states....

Thanks for replying....

I am not worried about the citizen ship time period. However i have a more concern about the "Do the immigration create any problem for us when we apply for my citizenship?

Or would my ex-wife create any problem for my current Permanent Residency CARD?

Would she able to do something to get my permanent residence card back?

No problem at all, however add 2 years to the residency time required before applying for citizenship.

Really! REALLY!!!

Your lucky your IO wont be reading this..if he does he will only come to 1 conclusion...your current marriage was not entered in good faith but solely for the purpose of getting a status.

You couldnt make it more obvious.shocked.gif

You can wait for 5 years and get citizenship and in the meantime bring your 'new' wife into the country.... I dont think you will have any issues...the Green card is permanent it wont be taken away.

Hopefully the IO looking through the 'new ' wifes file wont dig into her new husbands file..

About the ex wife creating problems...It all depends on why you married her.

If it was an arrangement between the two of you then she shouldn't have problems when you cut her loose...right?

If you went via the "i Love you till death do us part" route......Hell hath no Fury like a woman scorned....especially when and if she finds out plans for Wife#2.

There are many other issues she create which have nothing to do with your GC.

This is just my 2 cents from a woman who hasnt been scorned.

Good Luck to you, wife 1 and 2.

As said above only thing that really changes is you cannot go for citzenship till 5 years...

Unfortuantely the way you have said it seems that you already are ready to marry someone else wife #2 and due to the fact that you Know she will need to come from outside of the united states I would say you know exactly who she is.

Noone knows your full story so we are not here to judge I just wanted to point out why some people may critize.

i wish you luck :)

I hope you do have problems if you married a US citizen to come here so you could divorce her and marry that gal from your home country. In particular because of all the ####### we had to go through with constant accusations of fraud for even a valid marriage with threats of a $250,000 fine and five years in a federal prison.

In complete contradiction to the US Constitution, we were guilty of fraud until we proved ourselves innocent with great inconvenience and expense. And all this started in 1986 and augmented in 1988 because of fraud.

Yes, you can fly through US citizenship if you stay single, but will haunt you again during your petition stage, if this is the case, marrying a US citizen for strictly the purpose of coming here. I am not being the judge of that.

I think i made a mistake when i post this topic.

I am asking a general question, that me and my wife file for our divorce 2 days ago and she was asking about my GC letter and copy stuff. So, i thought she would be interested to cancel my GC that's the reason she was asking me to send her those copies ASAP or she would like to create any problem for my self for my GC.

And after i would get my divorce, i would free my self and would plan for the another marriage. As we all know there are some consequences for everything you do...

Thanks everyone for their replies...

AMEN!!!

Thank you for saying what a lot of us are thinking but cant say without risking being called 'mean and judgmental'

She is not entitled to copies of your Greencard or your immigration file, don't provide them to her.

If she wants the info she is entitled to then she can contact USCIS with a FOIA Request

FWIW, if she believes that you did marry her just for the Greencard then she can contact ICE and report her suspicions along with any evidence to support it. If she mkes such a report then you might have problems both at naturalization & if you ever petition an foreign spouse (especially from your home country and if you knew the 'new' wife prior to your marriage to the USC).

Wife asked me what I thought of her new from Colombian friend after she left. Really can't say, didn't get into it, but she told me her boyfriend dropped her because his family insisted she was marrying him only to come to this country and he was weak. But she also told me she was already a US citizen for 16 years! Just told my wife I am still very happy with the gal I got.

But I can't even count the number of times I was warned by friends or family about marrying a foreigner just because she wanted to come here. But went ahead anyway, never met a person like my wife before. Have to admit was even for just an instant, a bit of apprehension after she received her green card or US citizenship, she could have said goodbye.

I can only wonder how the spouse feels about the OP of this thread, would be very interesting to hear her side of the story, is she heartbroken, and did she undergo all the expense and trouble to bring him over here? And why does she want a copy of his green card?

Realize this is a touchy subject, but one all of us sponsoring US citizens faced to one extend or another, another just a moment of hesitation was signing my life away with that I-864, but hey, I love this woman! And in what reading I have done on this subject, the USCIS has a very poor track record in protecting the sponsoring US citizen. In far more favorite of a position to hang them for fraud. Then the OP opening admits to wanting to marry his girlfriend from his home country. What can one say about this? My sympathy goes to his sponsoring US citizen.
