  • If Divorce while citizenship Application being processed

    Hi everyone!

    Does anyone have any experience, or answer to the following situations?

    Let's say someone who has been married to the USC about six years and he/she just got his/her 10 yrs green card in the last six or seven months. Mean while, he/she applies for Citizenship and his/her citizenship application is being processed.

    The questions are:

    What will happen if the USC spouse divorce him/her now?
    If, the USC spouse divorce him/her now, will it affect his/her citizenship process?

    Thank you in advance.

      Explain better your situation please.

      Are you a PERMANENT RESIDENT OR A CONDITIONAL PERMANENT RESIDENT? HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A RESIDENT FOR? ARE YOU APPLYING UNDER THE 3 YEARS RESIDENCE REQUIREMENT BASED ON A MARRIAGE TO A USC OR ARE YOU APPLYING WITH THE 5 YEARS RESIDENCE REQUIREMENT?

        Yes, I am a permanent resident. I filed an application to remove my conditional resident on July 23, 1998 and got interviewed December 2002. I got my green card in March of this year. On April, I applied for citizenship and I had fingerprinted in May.

          Add to the previous reply..

          I believe I am applying under the 3 years resident requirement.

          On my green card it says it was issued on July 23, 1998 but I received the card in March.

          How do I count this?

          Thanks again.

            If you applied under the 5 years, which I believe is your case from 98 to 03 there are 5 years, when did you apply? If you apply under the 5 years residence requirement you are FINE.
            Now if you apply under the 3 years residency requirment + marriage to USC you might run into problems... better check with your lawyer how was your naturalization form filled...
