How do you get a divorce from an illegal immigrant who has left the US?
I'm sure you can. Go to the court house and file divorce papers and fill out everything that you can. They will tell you what you have to do.
A friend of mine had the same problem. in most places they will post an ad in the paper of the last known place your spouse lived. if they do not respond within 30 days, you can have the divorce finilized without them. good luck, i hope everything works out for you.
In the UK you can apply for a divorce without knowing the whereabouts of your spouse but it is well worth checking to see if they have actually divorced you first :) When you apply via a County Court you can check this out. Also, you can search the electoral roll. Please be *absolutely* sure you hve the right person before you start having papers served on some poor unsuspecting soul.
You have to file a contested divorce. Even if you find out where they are and cannot get them to agree to a divorce you can still get it. It takes longer and sometimes costs more than if both people become involved, but it can still work. It usually takes around six months to get it finalized where a non-contested divorce can be final in three.
Additionally, it is called an "Abandonment of Marriage".

No not an illegal immigrant but a legal one can. * If the couple were legally married the immigrant spouse can request spousal maintenance (alimony). Immigration issues are federal matters and have no bearing on domestic issues such as divorce. child custody/support which come under the jurisdiction of state not federal law.
How can a US citizen sponsor an illegal immigrant from Mexico so that they may remain or return to the US?
Your question reveals an unconscious bias. You said, = "How can a US citizen sponsor an illegal immigrant...." = If you "sponsor" them, they are not an "illegal immigrant." Careful, the way your question is phrased says a lot about you. The very term "illegal immigrant" is insulting to ....migrant workers, especially. Mexican citizens surely don't like the phrase and, by the way, Superman was apparently an "illegal immigrant" and you SURELY wouldn't want to insult HIM.
Does an illegal immigrant married to a citizens US have to go back to his country to get his green card?
Divorce law is governed by each individual state in the US. If a person meets the minimum residency requirement of their state (usually six months or so) they can go to court and request a divorce. Residency just means living in the state. It is not the same as citizenhip. A valid US divorce is valid in all parts of the US. Mexican law and treaties determine whether a US divorce decree is valid in Mexico. A certified transcript of the US divorce may have to be presented in Mexico to make it valid in Mexico. See: Illegal Alien Divorce for a more complete answer.
Can a Jehovah Witness Elder marry a US citizen with a Jehovah Witness that is an illegal immigrant in the US?
If your boyfriend and you want to get married and he is not a legal citizen can you still get married?
Since marriage to a US citizen confers US citizenship upon the spouse, it is not clear how your spouse is an illegal immigrant unless you are also an illegal immigrant (not that you actually said that either of you are living in the US, but that seems to be the most likely interpretation). I also don't know why you are abandoning your spouse instead of getting a divorce. Nothing will necessarily happen; it depends upon what action the abandoned spouse may choose to take. If you are sued, then there could be various consequences depending upon the outcome of the suit.
