Divorce her in your state. That is where you have residency depending on how long you have lived there.greg williams said:What is the name of your state? California
I was married in Las Vegas, NV about 10 monts ago to a russian lady I brought over on a fiancee' visa. When I brought her over she was given a separate apt for her and her two children. Almost immediately after the marriage her change of attiitude convinced me she married only for citizenship, she even stated so in a heated argument. I refused to comple further paperwork on her citizenship and finally she left after about 6 months and went back to Russia. I don't know where she is (she is not at the original address she was in russia). I have read advertisements over the internet that if I was married in Nevada, I can get a Nevada annulment for fraud for citizenship. Some places offer money back if the Annulment is not approved. Is this feasible, I want to move on with my life and don't want to remain married to a spouse in another country that I have no contact with?
It is generally easier, quicker and less costly to simply get a divorce even if you meet the requirements for an annulment. So that is the point that was being made.greg williams said:I am fully aware of residency requirements. I am also aware Nevada has less stringent laws on annulment and divorce. You did not answer the question?
Read this:greg williams said:I have not found that advice to be best in the past. Attorneys tend to do things that are easiest for them and not always in the best interest of their clients (this is true of all professions, I am not bad-mouthing attorneys). If they are familiar with divorce in their state they will push for a divorce in their state, because that is what they understand and they don't have to spend hours researching law books. An annulment is better than a marriage, in that it is as if the marriage never took place. If the online attorneys are correct in that they can obtain a sucessful annulment, that is the way I would want to go. My question was does this seem feasible to attorneys out "there" or does this sound like quackery?
If the OP want to continue being difficult and not listen to sound legal advice from you, an actual ATTORNEY, let him spend $10,000 trying to have the marriage annulled in a state that he is not a resident. Then the judge can tell him he needs to file for a divorce in his OWN state!Ohiogal said:Again, divorce is the route you should take and you should do so in your home state.
