Do you mean permanent residency? Or citizenship? In either case these belong to her and your divorce will not hurt her immigration-wise.

Citizens cannot be deported from the US unless their citizenship is revoked. The fact that you have gotten divorced after five (5) years should not lead to the revocation of her citizenship. However, I suspect that she really on has a green card at this point. So long as the conditions have been removed and she has a ten (10) year card at this point, your divorce should have no impact on her right to remain here in the US, unless it is later determined that your marriage was fraudulent.
