I have a pending I-485 based on my husband’s approved I-140. We are currently separated, and it will take many months before the divorce can be finalized. Will this impact my green card case?


If the divorce is finalized before the I-485 is approved, your case should be denied by the USCIS. However, if the green card is issued before the divorce is official, the divorce typically would have no impact on the green card.  (15.Jul.2021)
