I have a question... I got my 10 year GC like 4 months ago. and now situation has been changed. my wife wants divorce from me. I am trying to solve our issues but not sure that it will work or not.... We got stoke interview at AOS time..but at ROC there was no interview at all.

So for citizenship I believe that after divorce i have to go by 5 years rule for citizenship .

My question is

1. Is it going to cause issues that we divorced after 3 months of 10 years GC. (we got married in 2011).

2. when i apply for citiznship.. is it going to cause issues to me ?

I'm not in the same situation as you but I think you need to wait until you have been a LPR for 5 years to apply. If you apply now you run the risk of being denied because of your marital issues. I don't think getting a divorce after getting your GC is an issue and applying after 5 years shouldn't be an issue either, as long as you are a law abiding resident.

It won't be a issue for 5 y rule.my gf divorce after she got 10 y gc . She still get citizen by 5 y rule.

For me I apply for 5 y rule I am still married my USC hubb. When I have interviewed, they even have my all gc application file on io table.they even know my nickname. I ask io how she know it, she said they know. They didn't ask gc things, the just asked 6 civic question, read,write, approve it. But I know they have read my gc application file before interview me. They ask me if I marry in another city. They do check my date to move current city and dl address. It is a little bit nervous although I apply for 5 r rule.
