I filed for divorce in California by filing the FL-100 Petition to end my marriage. The form does not give me the option to write my complaint, so even though I filed for divorce because I came to realize that my then husband used me for immigration purposes, I chose the "irreconcilable differences" option.

There is the annulment of marriage option, but I heard that you had to have hard core evidence that he entered the marriage with me for his green card otherwise the annulment option was futile. At that time, I did not have a factual evidence, but over the
Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.
