Updating your green card
For example, if you were granted a Green Card through marriage to a US citizen but have since gotten divorced, your application for a Green Card may be denied. If your Green Card Renewal/Replacement application was denied, you do have an opportunity to ask USCIS to rethink their decision.
If your marriage to a US citizen ends within a period of three years, you may have to wait until you reach five total years of permanent residence before being able to file an application to get rid of your immigration status once and for all and become a US citizen.
You will need to file Form I-751, Petition to Remove the Conditions of Residence, before your first green card expires.
Form I-751 has a built-in waiver for those who have divorced their US citizen spouses, but USCIS will still require proof that your union was a good faith relationship and not just for immigration purposes.
Therefore, as long as your marriage was not fraudulent, divorce should not affect the immigration process.
