[Q] After our family members obtained CPR status, my wife (investor) and I got divorced. How does this affect future I-829?


[Q] My wife was the principal investor, and based on her I-526 petition approval, my wife, our children and I obtained CPR status. The time to file I-829 to remove conditional status is fast approaching. Can I still get permanent resident green card even though I am now divorced from my wife?

You should not lose your immigration status if you become divorced after having obtained CPR status, and the viability of I-829 does not depend on your divorce. In fact, the immigration regulations specifically state that "the former spouse of an entrepreneur, who was divorced from the entrepreneur during the period of conditional residence, may be included in the alien entrepreneur's petition [to remove conditions - Form I-829] or may file a separate petition."
