You can start nothing to do with the visa/immigration process until after you have a final divorce decree in hand. In the meantime, feel welcome to study the guides here and learn the process.

I recommend reading the guides. Actually, I URGE you to read the guides. You will definitely have a way better understanding of the process and what's needed to start your "visa journey".

Good luck

I'm no expert on the filing of papers....but my wife says that you can not start any papers until after the divorce or you could get in serious trouble legally. The best thing to do is:

1. Track down your husband.

2. Obtain a legal divorce and get your decree in you hand.

3. Once you are divorced go to meet your boyfriend and if you want to marry (after the divorce) do it, but get your divorce before you do anything!

In the meantime keep the communication with your Moroccan boyfriend going, cheer up and try not to cry too much, we all miss our sweethearts and hate the distances! You have come to the right place for support and advice. Good luck! :-)

If need be most states have a way to get a divorce without tracking the former spouse down, called "notification by publication" or "service by publication".

First and foremost...track your husband and divorce him. Then when the divorce is final and you are still in love with your boyfriend, start working on his visa to get him to the States. Time and distance will determine if what you and your boyfriend feels for each other is true and lasting. Goodluck and I hope everything will turn out fine.

You don't need to 'find' your 'husband' to divorce him. As pushbrk stated, you can file and if eh doesn't respond to the publication, they will grant you the divorce. Every state is different. You may also have a waiting period for the divorce to be considered final as well as a waiting period afterwards until which you can marry again. Know the laws of your state and get that decree. That is your first step!

I myself had a bit of a problem divorcing my ex wife who is American. As i'm from the UK and live here there was no easy route for me to divorce her in my own country as it was an international divorce.

I didn't know where she lived and she wouldn't say. It all boiled down to that she wanted thousands of $$$. In the end I did a search, got her address and filed at the nearest court in where she resided. It took 90 days as it was in Colorado. It only cost me about $190. I downloaded the divorce papers from the courts website and wooooooooooofffffffff, I did myself. I was damn surprised it was so easy.
