Hello,I have a question. I got married on January 13th 2012. My husband just confessed me that he was married before me and that his divorce has a stamp of 2011 dec 30. But the divorce letter came out by mail to him on 2nd of march 2012 which I thought no the date for the divorce to become finalized. How is this can affect my immigration status. I'm on the 10 year green card and applied for my citizenship. Obviously on the I-400 form I left it blank the section that asks about my husband previous marriage because he hidden from me until just now.

Immigrated on an F1 visa. HIB issued for 01/2008 to 01/2011.

Immigrated on an F1 visa.HIB issued for 01/2008 to 01/2011.Stopped working on 09/2009.Back to school from 10/2010 to 12/2011.Application to change to F1 in 12/2010 denied.Filled for asylum 2012: denied. Appeal won, court hearing scheduled for 08/2017.Self-sponsored 1-140 in 2009 as research associate, case closed because I did not provide additional information (scientific publications which I did not have then, but do have now).2016, called to inquire about the status of my work permit, they mentioned that the I-140 usually takes a while, meaning it is still pending(?).Currently married to a US citizen, about 7 months. Have not filed for a change of status because he does not currently have a job, but I have sufficient income as a registered nurse to care for my family that includes two children (US citizens).Can I reopen my I-140 file (my lawyer said it is possible, but I am skeptical)?Want to retain my asylum hearing on 08/2017. I am concerned that if it is denied, I will lose my legal stay and must provide proof of spousal hardship if I eventually file for Green card through marriage.Please advise. What are my best options given the circumstances.

I am a card holder since December 2000. I just renewed my

I am a green card holder since December 2000. I just renewed my ten year green card in 2015 and received my new card in March 2016. When I first got my greencard in 2000 it was through a fiance visa. My first husband sponsored me and we were married for 5 year (2000-2005) We divorced because we were not right for each other. I am now married to a new wonderful guy. We got married in December 2015. I will visiting my country of origin in November this year. When we return to the US will there be any issues? My name is ***** ***** previously married last name as i did not change my last name back to my maiden name or my new husbands name. I have always been a law abiding resident. Is my current green card always going to be tied to the fiance visa? My marriage was not a fraud, it just didn't work out. I have a good job in the US and have been here for the last 16 years.Not sure how the political environment in this country will change after the election.
