Hi all,

I immigrated from Canada and got my conditional green card in 2012. We applied to have the conditions removed and shortly after the two year mark I left him as the marriage was emotionally abusive. I had not received the new greed card in the mail and returned to a different state (we had just trasfered with the military). I am now wanting to file for divorce, however, my green card was mailed to my husbands home and he has not sent it to me. I am wondering if we divorce, with this effect my residency? How should I proceed?

Thanks in adnvance for any help!

If it was mailed to your old home, and he received it, you could demand it back. It is a felony if he doesn't hand you your greencard. If he said he didn't receive it, you would need to file an i90 to have it mailed to your new address again.

If your were issued a card, it will not affect your residence however little problem you have is you're supposed to have the card with you. Ask to get it back and if you don't - file I-90 to get new one.

You've been issued a ten year card, the divorce will not affect your immigration status. Had you filed for divorce during the ROC, you likely would have made the waters a little murky. Ask your husband for your green card, it is your card exclusively even if you obtained it originally through marriage. It might take a bit before you can file for a divorce, as you've just moved and likely haven't established residency in your new state. Possibly you've returned to your previous state and were not gone long enough to lose residency. Every state has different rules on this.
