Divorce and Permanent Green Card

Divorce and Permanent Green Card

If you get divorced after obtaining Permanent or unconditional Green Card, no further immigration applications or interviews will be required. Consequently, it is unlikely that US immigration authorities will even know of your divorce.

If you later apply for citizenship, however, USCIS will probably look back at your immigration file. If they discover your divorce and suspect that your marriage was not legitimate in the first place, they can deny your citizenship and revoke your green card.
