I’m A Green Card Holder In Queens. Will Divorce Affect My Immigration Status?

No, once you receive authorization to remain in the United States permanently, you don’t need to worry that divorce will impact your immigration status.

As a legal permanent resident, you have the same rights to divorce (and marriage) as any other resident of Queens, and your access to the courts are identical to those of every other New Yorker.

As an immigrant, you’ve made significant and impactful decisions in your life, and it’s important that you approach divorce with the same planning and care that you’ve applied to your path to permanent residency.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino know that you’ve worked hard for what you have, and we can help ensure that your divorce settlement has the most favorable possible conditions for you when it comes to finances, child custody, and property.
