Married but separated

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I will be able to file for citizenship in march based on 5 years.

My wife and I are still married but haven't lived together since August of 2011. I should mention its not a legal separation. Neither of us have been in a huge rush to get the divorce done, so I'm wondering if its gonna be a issue when I file in March. I have kept up with my address change to Immigration etc. we also have a son together that spends his time living with both of us equally.

Unconditional green card? Green card based on marriage?

I'm divorced but both of us have green cards - I'm applying based on 5+ years (nearly 10) as a GC holder. Was told this wasn't an issue. However, I didn't get my card for being married to a citizen.

Because you're doing it based on 5 years, your marriage isn't relevant. She's not included in the process at all.

If you were doing it based on 3 years you'd have a problem. List yourself as married of course, because you're not legally separated.

Divorces and separations happened, it is life. If you are applying on 5 years residency, you can answer about your marriage as for statistics but nothing of this will prevent you to become a citizen. You will be okay.
