Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.

I am sorry to hear about your situation. Please clarify:

1) Please tell me whether your greencard is based on marriage.

2) When did you get your greencard?

3) Did you ever file the I-751, and if so, when? Was it approved?

Okay, two more questions:

When did you get your greencard, initially?

Is your citizenship application based on marriage or 5 year residence?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I got my initial conditional green card on 8-26-2014.
My Citizenship application based on Marriage.
Immigration Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 5 months ago

Thank you. Nothing should happen provided that the divorce is not completed before your citizenship is finalized.

However, one wants to finish getting their citizenship before the divorce is finalized, which may mean dragging out the divorce.

I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of THREE OR MORE STARS and then click FINISH to submit that rating, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating (it does not cost anything extra to rate).
