Will Divorce Affect My Immigration Status?

A divorce case will typically not affect one’s immigration status in general. However, there are occasions where divorce in combination with additional circumstances can affect someone’s immigration status. Typically, if there is no fraud involved, then the fact of divorce should not affect one’s immigration status. If, on the other hand, the marriage was based on fraud, then a party might make a referral to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS).

For detailed information about immigration, I would recommend that you contact an attorney that specializes in immigration law. For purposes of divorce and immigration, there typically is no change in immigration status as a result of the parties dissolving their marriage.
