How will a divorce affect permanent residency received through EB-5?

My husband invested through the EB-5 program and we received our 10-year permanent green cards while we were starting the divorce process. Now that the divorce is being finalized, how will my green card be affected? Will USCIS send me back to my original country?

    If you have already obtained unconditional permanent residency, then a divorce will not affect your permanent residency.

    If you have a permanent 10-year green card, your divorce will not affect you.

    If you already received your 10-year green card, there is no reason for you to be tied to your spouse, who was the main investor. You are free to establish a new life and soon apply for your citizenship as well if you wish. Good luck to you.

    If you are a permanent resident your divorce will not affect your status.

    From your description, it does not appear that your status will be affected by your divorce. Good luck.

    The divorce should not affect your green card status, as long as you got the green card before the divorce became final.

    Without knowing more, it sounds like you already are full lawful permanent residents. At this point, based only on what was provided here, the green card would not be affected.

    USCIS will not send you back. You should just enjoy your green card.

    You should be okay if you have your full green card.

    If you already have the 10-year green card, then the divorce will have no effect on your immigration rights. The green card is yours.
