Question
A friend of mine is married to women from USA and is here on a F2 visa,his greencard still has not reached him and not him and his wife are not getting alone and feeling very estranged with eachother to the point he is wanting to get a divorce. If he gets a divorce how would this affect him visa if she withdrew her sponsorship?

Answer
Hi,

A divorce prior to your friend's adjustment of status interview (based on marriage to a U.S. citizen) will not entitle him to any benefits. He will need to depart the U.S. upon the divorce unless he independently maintains nonimmigrant status such as F visa status.
