Divorce applied for but not finalized question

Hi everyone, 

 

I am applying for citizenship independently from my spouse (five years in US) and we filed for divorce in December and we are still waiting for it to go through (a six month wait in California). Since we are not divorced yet I assume I put that I am still married on the application and by the time I am called to the interview I can show the examiner the documentation of the finalized divorce? (This would be better since my ex says she received no written evidence that we applied for it and the day she submitted the application). 

 

Thanks for your help!

Yes.  Since you are applying under the 5 year rule, chances are they won't even ask about your marital status.  Just bring your documentation just in case.

Yes. Application accurate as of day of submission, marital status accurate as of day of interview (or at oath ceremony if it changes between interview and oath).

Marital status is a standard question regardless of how you got your green card or what rule you are applying for N400 under.
