You are correct. You're divorce will not change your immigration status in any way.

You just won't be able to apply for citizenship based on 3 years of residency + marriage, but will be able to do so after 5 years of residency if you desire.

Do you happen to know if I need to supply immigration/"the green card people" my divorce papers when i get them?

and lastly if people like us can ever get re-married to an American if it happened in the future sometime?

Thank you

No you don't need to tell immigration (unless you want to change the name on your GC and if so you need to file an I-90 and pay the $450 fee).

Yes you can re-marry whoever you want. American, non-American... whatever.
