Question
If a marriage is entered into in good faith and after the the beneficiary receives there Conditional Residency green card the marriage is dissolving.  Will the beneficiary be denied permanent residency if she files for divorce immediately after receiving her Conditional Residency card.  Is there a certain time period that the beneficiary should wait to establish that the marriage was bona fide and entered into in good faith.

Answer
The beneficary should have evidence such as joint bills and taxes for the time period after the conditional card was received and the time of the separation. Leaving right after is not a great idea. I would recommend at least 6 months of bills before filing for divorce.

Regards,

Robert
