    Answered . Your marriage does not have to be registered in the United States. However, you do have to meet the Kansas residency requirement. You should consult a local divorce attorney to discuss your options.

    Answered . Yes. But you must meet the residency requirement for the state you are filing for divorce in. Consult with a divorce lawyer.

    If you have any further immigration questions, contact our law firm for a confidential consultation.

    Good luck.
