HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard. Please note that I do not participate in the phone call offers that are automatically generated by this site. However, I can continue to provide information to your questions here.Marriage is not the only grounds some immigrants have for filing a permanent residency application. If she obtained her green card through direct employment in the U.S., a job offer or your investment in a U.S.-based enterprise, the marriage – or lack thereof – has no impact on a current immigration status. Thus, she can apply for citizenship provided she meets the requirements for doing so. A divorce will not adversely affect an application.Additionally, one can apply for citizenship after 3 years of being a permanent residence due to marriage. Now, if you were divorced before the 3 years, then she would need to wait 5 years. Of course, if you feel you can show that she has falsified her application, you can certainly report it to the USCIS in Baltimore and they will investigate.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
