EAD status after getting divorsed

Recommended Posts

Hi ,my date got current in Feb 2012 Bulliten and i married my Girl friend in US. But now due to family issues back in India we want to get divorced. Both of them have EAD and waiting for GC and as everyone knows dates got retrogressed. If we get divriced now what will happen to our EAD's? I am the primary and she is my dependent. Is there a way that both of them can have EAD's. Please suggest me if there is any way or I need to wait until we get our Green cards.

It's kind of unlikely you made the same mistake twice... makes me wonder, is there more to the story?

The EAD is valid while I-485 is pending. If you divoce before both I-485s are approved, then her I-485 will (eventually) be denied, in which case your derivative will either have to find some independent status (and realistically speaking, only H and L seem to be workable options because she has expressed immigrant intent) or leave the country. So, EAD is not really an issue. A denied I-485 is.

Very interesting. Thats a big sacrifice you guys are making for the family especially when the family is back in India and you both want to stay in US !! So you want her to have EAD so she can live and work in US but you still want to divorce her. You do understand if you remarry someone else, your new wife cant even apply for EAD, she will have to be on her own status F1, H1 etc. Maybe you need to think and plan your future better. You should be concerned about the girl you will marry next than the girl you will be divorcing.

Hi Belle,

Thanks for your advice. Once 485's are approved for both of us and we get divorced will it be a problem for GC? Can she work independently?

Desi dude,

I understand but atleast i want to set everything for the girl I married. She has a good future in the present company. We thought that she can come back to H-1B but she will loose the job. So atleast I want to do something good for her before i leave her. I dont know whether the future girl that I marry will work or stay at home. If she works she can still apply for H-1B and wait for her turn for GC. What ever happens, it happens for good by gods grace. So I will wait until my 485's are approved.

You might want to get the opinion of a good immigration and/or divorce attorney before you proceed. Your intentions seem well but you might want to consider all aspects of the real world before you make your final decision.

sounds fishy..you guys would be caught on immigration fraud later on.

I agree. This seems like immigration fraud.

Dude you will be caught, that's a big risk you are taking, there's still time to mend it.

OP, please check murthy bulletin. There were some articles published regarding removing condition on the conditional green card status following marriage.

Then it would be worth checking with an attorney on this topic; you can make your decision afterwards.

I know it sounds like fraud but I dont have a choice. Now I am 27 and I can wait 1-2 years after getting GC and then get divorced. WIll it be ok? Is there any other ways? What is the best I can do? Is it better without getting divorced and stay single (as per my parents) until both the parents agree. I dont know whether I can ask here or not but I am so frustrated and confused. Please help

Get marriage counseling before getting a divorce. Parental pressure is not a reason for a divorce if you two care about each other.

You are adult and should be able to decide your future . This is after all the 21st Century. If she wants a divorce you do not have a choice. Why would you let her parents dictate to both of you?

t75 - True we need to get Marriage counselling before we get divorced. Hope it helps.

omshiv - I am ready to face the consequences. God will always be there to help us.

pontevecchio - My parents finally agreed but the girls parents are saying they will die which is usual. Before we make our decision, we need to talk to them one last time. Hopefully they will agree by gods grace.

If you are migrating anyway why would you bother. The moment you become a Dad, her parents will be bending over backwards to hold the child. Be a man.

That's 101% correct.

Surprised to know that we can get advice for fraud situations.

teja1987 - Hope your girl friend is not manipulating you. No offense though a practical thought.

Just be cautious. I don't think her parents would be dying.So, if she is divorced, would their parents be able to find Prince Charming for their daughter. So you will be living like a saint after divorce.

If possible be strong.

Thank you guys, the only thing I am scared of is like if they really die. Thats the only reason I am scared of otherwise I would never ever leave her. I think what ever happens, happens for good and we want to be together.

Man, this is an another good question.

What I understand here is ,OP is very timid and is not thinking practically.

Divorce is approved, only if the couple didn't like to stay together, but not because his or her parents didn't like the marriage.
