I apologize if this has been asked earlier. But i want help regarding my daughter's case. She got married some three years ago to a u.s citizen and got her CR 1 visa in 2014. She went with him to the u.s but as soon as they went there she started having problems. The guy asked her to go back home (Pakistan) in march 2015. She came back to us (her parents) in pakistan and tried talking it out with her husband and wanted to give him time to think abt it when nothing worked She returned to the USA in august 2015 just to try to talk it out with her husband. She didnt have neone else in that State to stay with so she went to her husband directly but he asked her to leave his home and divorced her. She was in a bad situation and returned to Pakistan immediately the next day after spending the night at a hotel. She came back started working in pakistan and hasnt returned to USA ever since.

my question is i have a tourist visa and my husband and my son are applying too. We are planning a family vacation but her case is a priblem. Her green card was still there however it got expired in october this year. We asked if abandoning is required in order to get a tourist visa for her but people say it is a lengthy process is that true?

Also if she applies for a tourist visa and surrenders her green card on the spot do u think it will affect her case in anyway? What is the best case scenario over here.

Thank you for ur help.

She should formally send back her greencard to the embassy, explaining what happened.

Then apply for a tourist visa after.

She fills out I-407 form to formally abandon green card, however long it takes. She will not be considered for a tourist visa with a hanging LPR status.
