At the INS office (Ithink they changed their name to something else, ICUS or something like that), anyway is the immigration service, a branch of the federal government. If you are here illegally, I would not recomend it to do it. You pretty much have to do it from your home country at the US consulate or embassy. There are many different kind of visas: tourist, fiance, employment, etc.

Evict her.Additional: If she has been a long-time resident you MUST do it in a legal fashion according to the laws of your state, however. Check with your local court - you may have to file eviction papers in order to get her out.

It depends on which county you live in, as to where to obtain and file. For instance, for Placer County - see the below link:

In order to file for a divorce, you have to be legally separated. You can file these papers on your own or hire an attorney. After a legal separation and a time period, you can then file for divorce or dissolution.

If you have been served with "court papers" or a lawsuit, you will need to file an answer and respond to the suit. In most (all?) places, a minor cannot initiate legal actions or serve legal papers.

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.

The answer varies by jurisdiction; however, you do not have to be legally separated to file for divorce.

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.

No, not citizenship, but a legal resident can petition a sibling for legal residency- but the sibling will have to wait in their home country many years (anywhere from 10-20 years)before being allowed legal entry in the U.S. Since you mention a legal resident, a legal resident can only petition a sibling if the sibling is SINGLE. If the sibling is married then you CANNOT file such a petition. If the sibling is single when you file the petition but subsequently gets married, you are required to inform the U.S. government- which would result in the petition being automatically VOIDED. If you know this and do not tell the government- then this would be considered fraud- putting your own legal residency and potential residency of the sibling at risk.

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.

To categorize the papers of an office into a file you need to punch them and file them accordingly.

You file for divorce in the state where you are a legal resident. Some states have waiting periods (6 months or so) that you must be a resident of that state before you can file. These are to prevent people from moving temporarily to "court shop."

If there was illegal entry, then no, marriage doesnt make you a legal resident. You would need to file a 130 petition along with a I-601 waiver at the U.S. embassy/consulate in HONDURAS, and you would be required to appear there. If you had legal entry, then it would be possible to get legal residency through marriage to a citizen.

There are a number of places online which offer free legal forms for separation. However, if a person is wanting to divorce their spouse, then it is best they file divorce papers. Divorce papers are the only legal forms which formally dissolve a marriage. Free legal separation papers may be found at the California Courts website (these are only good in California), Law Depot, Rocket Lawyer, and Legal Contracts.

Usually a person files for divorce in their current resident state. If your Mexican marriage is recognized as legal by the U.S. then you will have to file in America if that is where you are living
