The consequences of a divorce are likely to depend largely on which type of permanent residence card you hold at the time of your divorce. There are two different types of “permanent” residence cards — conditional permanent residence card and permanent residence card.
You will be granted conditional permanent residence if you were married less than two years on the date your green card application is approved. In this case, you will need to complete a second immigration application to remove your conditional residency two years later to have the condition removed and get the permanent card. If you were married two years or more on the date your green card application is approved, no further application is required, and you will receive a permanent green card.
