A few months ago, my husband and I were issued green cards based on his approved I-140. While our I-485 applications were pending, we separated. Our divorce is now close to being finalized. Will this put my green card in jeopardy?


Generally speaking, as long as the couple is legally married at the time the green card is issued, getting divorced after the green card is issued would not impact the validity of that green card. (10.Aug.2022)
