If I get a divorce while I am a temporary permanent resident, is it impossible to apply for permanent residence?
Q. Is it impossible to apply for permanent residence if I am divorced while I am a temporary permanent resident received through the spouse of a citizen?
It was said that life history is not new. As much as they love each other and get married, it is natural to decide to divorce for various Save Changes reasons. In other words, it is unreasonable to force them to live together in order to receive permanent residency in a situation where living with a spouse who has changed their mind has become an embarrassment.
Therefore, if you can prove that your marriage was true up to the time you decided to divorce, the USCIS will apply a convenient exception instead of discriminating against temporary permanent residents on the basis of divorce during the conditional period. In the case of general conditional termination, both spouses must apply together, but in the case of divorce, the temporary permanent resident can apply alone.
Q. What do you need to prove that your marriage was true up to the time you decided to divorce?
A. As when applying for permanent residence for the first time, materials in the joint name of the couple are required. Usually bank accounts, utilities, lease agreements, tax returns, etc. are acceptable. If there is not enough data in the joint name of the couple, statements from close acquaintances are also of great help.
Q. When considering divorce, when is it advantageous to complete the divorce to maintain permanent residency in order to proceed with conditional termination stably?
A. There is no need to worry about the timing of divorce, assuming that your marriage was sincere before the decision to divorce. If the divorce is completed during the conditional period, you can apply for conditional termination on the day the divorce is completed without having to wait 90 days before the conditional expiration date.
