I applied to get a green card for my brother and his wife in July 2004. Their application was approved. They have been married for ten years. What will happen to my brother's green card situation if they get divorce?
If you have petitioned for your brother his divorce will have no effect on his application but it will mean his ex-wife can no longer immigrate through your petition. Any of their children would still be eligible to be included if unmarried and under 21.
If they are still waiting for the immigrant visa, nothing will happen. He will process when the Visa is available and she will not.
His marital status is not relevant to your petition for him. He will get his permanent residence.
Your brother's immigrant visa petition should not be affected by the divorce. You may want to notify USCIS or the National Visa Center depending upon where the case is currently located once the divorce is final. You will need to make sure all future forms are changed to indicate he is divorced. Your brother should also make sure to obtain a certified copy of the divorce decree as he will need it later in the processing of his case.
If your brother has his permanent resident card then the divorce will have no effect he should be able to become a citizen after five years. However if the his green card is conditional 2 year then his status is in jeopardy if they divorce. Good luck!
Because your application was for your brother, the fact that he gets married will have no effect on his ability to get his green card once his turn comes up on the visa bulletin.
Your brother's petition (I assume you mean the I-130 petition) is dependent on the two of you remaining brothers and will not be affected by a divorce.
If your petition was for your brother, his divorce will not affect it.
If you applied for your brother directly with a sibling petition and he subsequently divorces his wife, the divorce will have no effect on your petition for your brother. Once the divorce is final, his wife will not be able to immigrate with him on the petition, but since the petition is for him directly and she is just a derivative on the petition, the divorce will not effect his ability to immigrate on the petition.
Your brother's application for residency will still be valid. However, your sister-in-law will become ineligible once they get divorced.
Nothing. The application is still good.
Nothing. Except his ex-wife will not be able to be an immigrant.
