Married in Canada, seeking divorce in US. Is it even possible?
Hello everyone. I was married in Quebec (US Citizen) to my current girlfriend in order to get her a visa to move with me to US. Things fell through and now she wants to separate. I’m trying to figure out what I have to do to be legally single in both Canada and US. We never lived together, and we were married for 18 months seeing each other roughly for 3-4 days a month. To make matters worse she’s left Canada and is in another country until August (not US). It’s tough to read about divorce and figure out what has to be done given my emotional state, but it’s even harder when not even google has clear answers. If someone can help me out, that would be great. Thanks.
More info: only way US knows I was married is because we applied for a spousal visa. I also filed my 2009 taxes as “married, filing separately.” Would the US have any record of my marriage?
Canada isn’t even a real country. Everybody there lives in igloos, uses Monopoly money, and rides a polar bear to work instead of driving a car. Also, hockey SUCKS. The only thing that is worse is your pathetic version of football.
