Can I get a same-sex marriage green card if I’m divorced from an opposite-sex spouse?
Proving that a prior heterosexual marriage represents past history.
I’m a 35-year-old woman, who was married to a man when I was young, in my home country. We had one child together, soon after which he and I divorced. A lot of changes have happened in my life since then: I’ve come out as a lesbian and fallen in love with a U.S. citizen woman. I’m thrilled to hear that, if we got married, I might be allowed to apply for a green card and join her in the United States. But isn’t it going to be hard to prove that our marriage is real given my previous marriage to a man?
