    Default Divorce from Wife Who is Not a U.S. Citizen

    My question involves a marriage in the state of: Georgia

    I am married to a lady that is here in the US on a temporary work visa. I am now divorcing her. She had an interview with Immigration and wanted me to sign the paper work for her to get her green card, but I refused. She has been constanlty harrassing me on the phone and begging me to come and sign the paper work. She has now placed an order of protection on me and has come up with bogus lies about me being physical and verbally abusive after she found out I was divorcing her. She has made constant threats to me about how she is going to make me pay. She is still here living in my home. I refused to go to my home and really wish for her to leave. I wish to know if I could contact Immigration regarding her bogus lies as a way to stay in US and what best way to proceed with this divorce? Thanks.

    One question first, please.

    YOU didn't sponsor her, correct?

    You haven't filed ANY paperwork on behalf of her, right?

    No, I did not sponsor her. I have never filed any paper work on behalf of her.

    Excellent! That IS good news for you.

    So, the next question is how long have you been married?

    Even better!

    Okay. File immediately for divorce and request exclusive use of the marital home. She will not get alimony for such a short marriage, she cannot enforce the I-864 Affidavit Of Support (since you didn't sign one!), and basically let her try and get her VAWA status. Contacting immigration won't do anything really - it's your word against hers, and she has the OOP against you.

    Let her go her merry way. Get on with your life.

    And for the love of all things pink and shiny, do NOT sign one darned THING relating to her immigration status. Do. Not. Sign.
