Unless you got married by a back alley wanna be justice of the peace, then yes, you can get a divorce. A marriage would never be granted to undocumented immigrants if laws would be broken.

No they cannot.... they need to return to the original place they married and file for divorce there. My best friend had to do this.

Yes. No identifying documents should be requested when you apply for a license to get married.

You file for divorce in the state where you are a legal resident, regardless of where you were married.

You file for a divorce in the state you have legal residency. It does not matter where you got married.

Several problems might arise because of the "undocumented" issues, which would probably void the possibility of a divorce. However, under regular circumstances persons who were married outside of the United States may indeed be divorced under the laws of the state where they have established residency.

You file divorce in the state in which you are a resident, regardless of where you were married. So if you are resident of TX, that's where you file for divorce.

It seems that you are asking about your marriage to an undocumented immigrant (a/k/a an illegal alien). The lack of a legal immigration status has no effect on the validity of a marriage. Persons illegally present in the United States can marry citizens, or marry other undocumented immigrants, and their marriages are perfectly legal. If you married a foreigner (whether he has a visa, a green care or neither) then you remain legally married to him (even if he returns to his country) and you may not marry again unless you first obtain a legal divorce.

No No. No because the state or place that you get married in, that's the only place that you can that you can file a divorce in. If you think about it, it all comes to you pretty clearly.

You file for divorce in the state in which are a legal resident, even if that's not the state you were married in. In TX you have to live in the state for 6 months before you can file for divorce.

If an undocumented (illegal) immigrant is married to a U.S. citizen, then they are a U.S. citizen. So their divorce from another U.S. citizen won't affect the status of their child at all.

You file in the state in which you are a resident, even if that was not the state where you married.

Yes, just like any other divorce. The father will have visitation rights though whether you are married or not.

User Avatar

Yes you can as both of you are living and also got married in the U.S.A.

User Avatar

I do not think they can. I doubt that the state (or the country) will recognized the marriage of two illegal immigrants who married in another country. After all as far as the government is concerned "they are not here."

He can refuse, but that will not prevent the requesting spouse receiving a divorce under the default laws.

You file for divorce in the state where you are a legal a resident, regardless of where you got married. TX requires that you have been a resident of the state for at least 6 months in order to file for divorce there.
