  1. By simply filing for a divorce in the family law court having jurisdiction over your place of residence. The fact that you are undocumented does not strip you of the right to file. It does not matter if you wee married on Mexico or Timbuktu, you reside in Columbus, you have the right to file in Columbus.

    As this is not a question having g to do with immigration law,, you should repost it in the Family Law section.
