Will My Divorce Impact My Status?

If you are an immigrant who is thinking of divorcing or separating from your spouse, then your status can be affected if your spouse sponsored your visa application. If this is your situation, then you are considered a conditional resident, which means you need to complete additional paperwork within two years of your marriage if you want to adjust your status to become a permanent resident.

Whether your divorce will impact your immigration status will depend on your spouse's status, as well as the type of immigration benefit you receive. Although your divorce might make it harder to obtain status as a permanent resident, you can still petition on your own if you can prove you married your ex-spouse in "good faith" and had plans to live together in the United States before you deiced to file for divorce.

To prove you entered into a "good faith" marriage with your ex, you can provide the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) with the following types of evidence:

  • Joint Lease Documents
  • Joint Credit Cards
  • Joint Bank Accounts
  • Car Insurance Policy
  • Healthcare Policy
