Here is my situation. I am H-1b presently residing in California. I was married in Dec-2014 in India my home country and came to US along with wife in Dec 2014. In Feb 2015, we came to know my wife was excepting and everything seemed to be good. Then one day suddenly in Aug 2015, she left US for India and informed me that she was leaving when she had already boarded the plane. After that there has been virtually no contact with me and my wife. I did visited India in May-2019, and then also there was no contact between me and my wife. At this point I am stuck, as I want to get out of this marriage. Can some please advise what are the various options available and which is the best path to move forward.
I stumbled upon your question, it was listed in Debt Settlement instead of immigration and/or family law. You can divorce from the US and cancel all immigration petitions. Seek a lawyer who can handle both, or more likely, find an immigration lawyer and a family lawyer. It's possible to do it yourself but it's difficult to navigate the two systems. Good luck.
A person on H-1b presently residing in California may contact a divorce attorney and divorce in CA.
