If you have an attorney, you should be discussing this issue with him or her.
If you are representing yourself, you should consult with a family law attorney right away.
It is possible that her immigration status could make you more liable for her support if you have agreed to sponsor her with INS.

I agree with Attorney Sampir. You should consult a local attorney so he or she can give you a complete legal analysis of your situation and or move the process along.
