Ask a Lawyerwhat's this?

Question

Country: United States of America
State: Nevada

Hi, my name is Vies. I recently received my temporary green card. The marriage, however, does not seem to be working for my husband and he is willing to get a divorce. What are my chances of receiving a permanent green card if I get divorced now? What options do I have?

Answer

You will likely get it as long as immigration does not think the marriage was a fraud...
