What state. (required when posting on this site)?Hello
If a person obtained a green card through marriage and is divorced now, it's 5 years from getting the GC until they can sponsor a spouse. Is it 5 years form the first conditional GC or 5 years from getting the unconditional 10 year one?
According to this:Why do you believe there is a five year waiting period?
"May". The word you're looking for is "may".According to this:
Its not an absolute requirement but if you attempt to do it sooner than that the powers that be will treat the previous marriage as highly suspect and possibly not bonified.
Clarify something for me.
A person obtained a green card 5 years ago by being married to a US citizen. That marriage ended in divorce and now that person wants to sponsor his/her spouse for a green card.
When did that person remarry and was the marriage in the US or abroad?
Please, have one of the legal parties sign up, using their own user name, and ask their own questions. It's better if the legally involved parties post for themselves. thank you.They haven't married yet. When they do it won't be in US. And she is a PR not a citizen. It's been over 5 years since getting PR and over a year since divorce.
A real can of worms, and I believe that if a green card holder leaves the US to get married after getting a divorce, immigration will suspect a marriage of convenience.They haven't married yet. When they do it won't be in US. And she is a PR not a citizen. It's been over 5 years since getting PR and over a year since divorce.
