Default Several questions about Divorcing in U.S. if married in russia.

1. Can a woman stay in the US (and for how long) after divorce if her status
depends on her spouse?

2. Can the woman get a work visa immediately after divorce?

3. Can she live separately (and for how long) from her spouse while waiting
for the green card (a joint application, obviously).

Thanks!

Assuming she has a pending I-485 petition, yes.

She can apply for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) based on her
pending I-485.

Yes. Also, if she can prove that the marriage was entered into in good
faith, she should be able to get a GC.

Hop over to the alt.visa.us.marriage-based forum. There are lots of people
there who have experience with cases just like yours, I mean hers! ;)

Best of luck.
