Have you already received derivative asylee status? Or it is still pending?

Have you gotten a green card through Adjustment of Status yet?

If you divorce before being granted asylum, then you are not eligible for derivative asylum anymore. If you yourself have a fear of persecution, you can apply for asylum on your own (as a principal asylee in a new asylum application). You are exempt from the 1-year filing deadline if you file soon after the divorce because the divorce from the previous principal asylum applicant counts as a changed circumstance.

This is an immigration lawyer’s website. You can ask about this with him. It is just similar to this forum but he’s the only one who answers everyone’s questions. A small help from my side. I feel sorry for you and do you have EAD?

I have EAD, does divorce decree certification effect on EAD?

Your divorce will not affect your A05 EAD. However, you can't adjust to AS7 green card if your husband divorces you before the adjustment.

Try to make the divorce happens after you get your AS7 green card.

Sorry I did not pay attention. You are not an asylee. You are a derivative asylum applicant. So, your husband divorces you will affect your EAD. You can file an immigration petition for yourself and get an EAD.

Friends, i need your advice.I am too a derivative asylee with my spouse being principal.
We have been having relationship issues. Now i found out that we have been granted asylum, but i have to wait a year before i can apply for the green card itself. Situation is that my spouse left the country without advanced parole due to family emergency. What should i do now? Will i receive the greencard if i wait a year to apply for it?
Thank you!
