[Q] Divorce or death after I-829 is filed but still pending?


[Q] 8 C.F.R. § 216.6(a) clearly states that where the principal applicant dies or gets divorced during the two-year conditional resident period, the former spouse and children can file I-829s together or separately. What if the divorce or death takes place after the 2-year conditional resident period but while the I-829 is still pending? What happens then? A reasonable interpretation would be that the answer remains the same.

USCIS Answer: The situation is handled in the same manner.
