    It is unclear from your post if your current status is F1 or H4. If you go for F1 visa, you need to mention to the VO about your family situation and you will not be asked for any H documents.

    As far as the divorce timing goes, it does not matter if you get it now or later. With your F1 status or H4 status, no one can cancel your visa. However, with H status, if your status expired and is not renewed by your sponsor, you may fall out of status.

    I am not a lawyer and you need to consult with one to validate any info posted on the forum and discuss your case specifics. H1b Question? Read the FAQ first.

      Divorce before Visa application is better since there will be no spouse holding you back in the US. One less reason for immigrant intent denial. You will need to show property, family or job ties to the home country though and your school and program must also be legitimate.
      This is my opinion and not legal advice.
