divorce while on conditional green card HELP

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



Please, advise: 

I have a conditional green card which expires next year but I got divorced. I still have time to file my I751 but before that I wanna travel to Canada for a vacation. Can I travel there and be admitted back to USA? Even though I am divorced and my green caRd is conditional? Or before traveling I need to file my i751? Can officers on the board know that I am divorced and don’t let me in because of that?



my divorce was tough and for several major reasons - marijuana, dating apps and no conversations about any problems - but after we got divorced my ex husband became a totally different person! And he is trying to get me back. I know that he did lots of bad stuff to me and I still didn’t forgive him but I still have some feelings for me and he does everything to win me back - flowers every other day, he is taking me out to dinners, texts me all the time, he wants to go to the counselor if I am back and talk about problems, he deleted all (removed) from his social networks.... don’t smoke weed at least not every day. and I don’t know.. I fell like at some point I wanna give it another try... maybe not like right away but if I will see he is different for a period of time ... maybe! But if we get back together like gf and bf one day and I file with waiver what should I say to the officer? That I got divorced but get back together with my husband and now we are dating???

If your divorce is final, you can file for ROC anytime you want. Please study the guide for I-751 and you know what to do.

Thank you for your attention but I don’t see how it answers my question. I know I can file I751 anytime now and I know what I gotta do now since I am

divorced. But the instructions don’t say if I can travel being still on conditional green card but in divorce.

Getting a divorce does not terminate your status as a legal resident.......therefore, you are allowed to travel and reenter the US with your Green Card.
