A: Thank you for your question.

I am sorry to hear about your marriage. You have now received citizenship, therefore you are free to move and will continue to have your United States citizenship.

There are questions circulating on the news and social media about citizenship being revoked, but these are in cases of fraud and other ill gotten privileges. In your instance, you have not indicated any adverse issues to raise this flag.
