Filed: Citizen (pnd) Country: Thailand

I got married with my US citizen ex-husband in August 2007. We filed and got 2 year GC in July 2008 with no problem. The decision for 10 GC was made on Aug 27, 2010. My ex husband filed for divorce around April 2011. He did, however, put the date we separate on Aug 30, 2010. We didn't know exact date. He just picked the date. Therefore, I put Aug 30, 2010 as the date I moved out from his house.

Now I am applying N-400. Will I have trouble getting approved? I am applying USC under 5 year rule. I sent the application it and received a text that they got my application. I did not worry about it before , however, i looked at other cases online and they worries me because my separation date is right after the decision date.

Should I seek a local immigration to represent me? Will that be better or will turn out the same?

Thank you!

Anytime a foreigner marries a USC, gets a green card and divorces, it makes the USCIS question your true intentions. I was grilled at my ROC interview as we had divorced and I had filed the ROC with a waiver.

Legal representation may help but I don't think its necessary in your case. Immigration officer may question your marriage but if you can explain your circumstances truthfully from marriage 2007 until divorced 2011, I don't think you will have any problems.

Citizenship and ROC are apples and oranges. Since your filing under the 5 year rule, you wont have any issues regarding your marriage. You can file the N-400 4 years and 9 months from the date on you original green card which would be April 2013. You can file the N-400 now.

ETA: You wont need a lawyer based on the information you have provided here. It would be a waste of money.
