Thanks for the clarification.
It is quite possible that they will deny the application, and ask that you complete the divorce, and then apply after 2 more years (5 years since becoming a permanent resident). In order to continue to be eligible for naturalization
after 3 years, you have to still be married to the sponsor. And if the USCIS knows that you are going to divorce or are in the process of divorce, they can and often do ask that the person waits out the 5 years instead.
Please know that I always do my best to help customers come up with a good solution, but from time to time, the law does not provide a good solution to every situation. Unfortunately, I cannot change that. I am only here as an information source, so please do not hold bad news against me by giving me a negative rating.
I hope I have answered your questions. Keep in mind that I only get credit for my work if you rate me positively. If you're satisfied with my answer and my professionalism - not the outcome or the state of the law which I cannot control - please select a top-three rating. Again, if you feel the need to use "poor service" or "bad service," please ask follow-up questions instead, so that I can try to help you further. Remember that the bottom two negative ratings are used for Experts or professionals who are rude and/or bad at their job, and I'm confident you'll find me to be professional and truthful with you.
is appreciated, if you feel I've earned it.
