Default Is my green card valid and can I go back to the US on that card?

I was married to a US citizen in June 2004. I went to the US in May 2005 on an immigrant visa and received my conditional green card. My marriage was horrible from the start. In feb of 2007 I filed for removal of conditions. While my petition was pending, things got really bad and I filed for divorce in may 2007. I had no money and no way to look for a job and was living in a freind's house so I decided to come back to my country as he would not turn up for hearings. My divorce was finalized in the US in feb of 2008 and I received my 10 year green card in March of 2008. I am not sure how to proceed now as I am still in my home country but planning to go bac to the US. Is my green card valid and can I go back to the US on that card?

Default Re: Green Card

Review your details briefly with an immigration lawyer as well.

But it should be valid and you should still be able to enter.

I would consult the USCIS offices but am sure it is still valid. there may be an expiry date however on how long you have until you need return to the country. just check.
