That's exactly the same thing I want to know...From what I have found out you must divorce in Costa Rica..If your spouse doesn't want to divorce you, then you must wait two years before it can be finalized there.

You as a married person in Costa Rica must divorce with the Costa Rican laws, even if you appeared single in the US or anywhere else. Failure to get that divorce can cause you a lot of trouble, because Costa Rican laws might reach other country's laws and you will have to pay spouse support. Find a Costa Rican Law office and tell them your story and your needs.
