Can foreigners get divorced in us?
You may be surprised to learn you don’t need to be a U.S. citizen to get divorced in the United States. Non-U.S. citizens are afforded the same resources and rights in divorce proceedings as U.S. citizens, including the ability to file for divorce and have an attorney represent them.
Do you have to live in the same state to get divorced?
The majority of states require that a spouse reside in the state before filing for divorce in that state. If you and your spouse live in different states, you may divorce in either state in which one of you has met the residency requirements before filing.
How do I get a divorce if my wife is not willing?
If you properly served the divorce petition and your spouse filed an uncontested response, but won’t sign off on the final divorce papers, courts in some states may allow the case to proceed as though it’s uncontested. You may wait to be assigned a court appearance date.
