Family Law: divorce proceedings, conclusion of marriage (Russia)

I am a Russian citizen, married to the US green card holder. My husband is going to file for citizenship this November. We got married when I was an exchange student in US in spring 2001; we have been married for 2 years. My husband has filed sponsorship papers to bring me to US int he summer of 2003, but there has been no developments even since. Now I got accepted to a 4-year PhD program at Northwestern University, USA. The give me full funding. The program starts this September. I need to apply for an F-1 visa now, but I suspect that since I am married to the US permanent resident, I will not be given a nonimmigrant student visa. We are contemplating divorcing, withdrawing sponsorship claims, and me applying for a visa after we are divorced. What do you recommend in this situation? Do you think divorce is necessary or I will be given a student visa in spite of the fact that my husband filed sponsorship papers for me? Thank you very much.


I am specialized in divorce proceeding with foreign citizens. Thank you for your addressing to me.
