My wife divorced through power of attorney in Colombia from her American husband while living with me in Florida for more than 6 months. Right after the divorce became valid in Colombia we married in Florida and then left the country to apply for her I-130.
We now received a letter from USCIS stating that the Colombian divorce is not valid for US immigration purposes because neither she nor her ex husband were residing in Colombia.
Consequently our marriage is also not valid what takes the grounds for the I-130 application.
We are filing in Frankfurt, Germany as I am German and US citizen.
What are our options? Is there a way to validate the Colombian divorce? Or does she have to get divorced again in Florida or California (residence of ex-husband)?
Thank you very much for your help
