Question
Q-After divorce, can my wife immediately marry a citizen
and get green card sponsored from her new citizen husband. My wife already has a conditional 2-year green card, can her new husband appply for her, does she has to withdraw from current conditional green card, so that new husband can immediately re-apply for her.


Answer
Hi Ali,

Yes, your wife can marry another U.S. citizen immediately after the divorce, and the U.S. citizen spouse can sponsor her. The USCIS will give closer scrutiny to the new marriage at the time of the interview, but if the marriage is bonafide, she can receive resident status again in the U.S.
