If you have already been granted permanent resident status, your divorce from your husband should not affect your legal status unless there are allegations of marriage fraud for the purpose of attaining an immigration benefit.

Generally, no, but if there are mitigating factors, it's certainly possible.

    Should be okay. Don't you have the 10-year green card if you are not a citizen?

    If you have a valid permanent resident status and card, a subsequent divorce will not result in your loss of the status. If and when you apply for U.S. citizenship, the validity of the marriage could be raised, so consult an immigration attorney first.

    I would need to know more about your legal status - are you a permanent resident, temporary resident, undocumented? Do you have a green card or a visa? What is your country of origin? All of these facts would affect my advice on your status and how you should proceed.
