    I agree with Mr. Gould Saltman. File your case in California. California is a "no fault" state, meaning that it doesn't matter what the reason for the divorce is; there is no fault assigned to either party. You may have some of your attorney fees paid, but you will have to pay your attorney first and hope to get reimbursed from your husband through the court. You should seek an in-depth consultation with a lawyer however as there is a lot going on in your case that cannot be addressed...

    You can divorce your husband at any time. It does not mean that his immigration status will revoked however. He can apply for a waiver and if he qualifies, he can get permanent residency. Threatening your husband based on his immigration status can also in some cases result in him getting permanent residency. Best of luck, -Sanjay A. Paul, Esq. www.DreamLawCA.com

    Definitely speak to an attorney because you have a few options to discuss: 245(i); continuing with the I-130 and consular processing; the new stateside waiver process; and if you qualify, deferred action has its advantages as well. Best of luck, -Sanjay Paul, Esq.

  9. Filing for divorce+new residence in California

    You are not eligible to file for a Divorce yet because you have not been a resident 6 months; however you are eligible to file for Legal Separation in California. Once you reach your 6 month residency, you can then amend your petition to that of a dissolution. The advantage of filing for legal separation first is that you will still get the relief you would seek in a divorce (spousal support; child support, property division, etc). Best of luck! -Sanjay A.

    File a Request for Order with the court. It might be helpful to also propound Form Interrogatories on her. Also, you may want to look at your ex-wife's Income and Expense declaration that the original support was based on to see what her expenses were. Sometimes when a spouse shows more expenses than income, the judge will impute the expenses as her or her income.
