  • Citizenship Revocation

    I obtain my permanent resident status through marriage, subsequently my wife and I decide should I join the military to better start our life since I cant find any decent job other than menial. There then I was informed and filed my citizenship through military service which I was naturalized right away after in about few months. At this point in time I am only 1 year from the when I acquired my green card supposedly conditional for 2 years but expedited citizenship instead. Unfortunately, relationship didn't turn well specially being apart from each other due to military duties. I am considering divorce..( I am open to personal opinion regarding where you guys are standing in this scenario). She now threatens me of reporting the issue to INS.. I opinions to break down this matter should it happen she will reports this to INS and claiming marriage was fraud.

      Hi Mahon and welcome,

      You say you were naturalized right away meaning you are now a citizen? Please clarify, because you also discuss having the conditional green card. If you are a citizen, there's not much your ex can do. If you are a conditional green card holder, wait until after the divorce and apply for the waiver to remove conditions. In this case, you will need good proof that your marriage was bona fide. On the other hand, your wife will also need concrete evidence to prove you married her for a green card if she wants to take this route.

      Hopefully, everything will work out in the end. Good luck!

        Thank for your reply ProudUSC,

        Anyway, yes I am now a naturalized citizen.. what should I expect if the issue will reach to INS, how should they litigate my case?

          As a citizen, I doubt there's anything she can do now. Plus the fact you are serving in the US military, I don't think any case she brings about will hold up in court. My opinion only - you might want to ask a lawyer, but I think you will be fine.

            You won't be stripped of your Citizenship just because you're considering a divorce. The only way it could happen is if they can prove you got your green card through fraud (i.e. only marrying for immigration benefits). For that to happen, they need strong evidence, not just someone's word.

            I don't think you have anything to worry about. Your wife is probably just angry and upset and trying to hit you where she thinks it will hurt. Have you guys considered counseling?

                I wouldn't sweat it too much. USCIS will only act if there is enough hard evidence of marriage fraud and its even harder to revoke citizenship than permanent residency. The worst she's likely to do is write a sour grapes letter to them. Without real evidence to back it up they are filed under T for trash

                    The USCIS fraud department are like family court judges - they've heard everything from warring wives and husbands going through a divorce. They don't believe everything they hear unless it's backed up with irrefutable proof.
