I married my ex wife while she was legally married (not a valid marriage), I went to court to get an annulment, than I amended the petition and got a divorce. When I filled the i-751, the immigration denied my waiver because the marriage was non valid legally because the citizen was already married when she married me so there is no legal marriage to start with. However, I have a divorce decree from the the superior court of California. Did the immigration properly denied my I-751 petition ?! Is that a valid reason ?Mr Carl Shusterman, What you said makes no sense. Annulment has no retroactive effect in immigration matters. Please see the Matter of Wong (1977) I did have a Divorce decree based on incredible difference Family Code, Section 2310(a) by the Superior Court of California. The California Superior Court divorce decree provided to USCIS is entitled to full faith and credit by federal courts and agencies. however the Immigration did not accept that final judgement and argued that I have no legal termination of the marriage!!!
