If your green card is a conditioned green card, you will probably need to. However , if evidence show you are battered spouse, you may have chance to stay. You are welcome to contact us.

If you were granted a permanent Green Card (ex. does not expire after 2 years) it is not affected by your divorce and you keep your status. If you were granted a conditional Green Card (ex. expires after 2 years), you can still file to remove the condition and obtain a permanent Green Card even if you are divorced.
