Other questions about divorce.... His and Hers

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife and I were married in Ukraine. We filled out all the paperwork for the K-3 and had our Embassy interview scheduled. The relationship ended days before the interview took place.

Questions from me:

1. If we did not interview or receive the K3 Visa, is our marriage still recognized as a legal marriage in the USA?

2. I have the Ukraine Marriage Stamp in my passport now. Does this affect anything having to do with my getting remarried in the future?

3. Do I need a "divorce", as in a legal divorce with appropriate paperwork, etc. for the USA or for Ukraine?

Questions from her:

4. Can my wife go to her RAGS/ZAGS office to get the divorce without my being there?

5. We were married in an Oblast different from her Oblast of residence. Does she have to travel to the Oblast where the marriage took place to have the necessary paperwork completed?

Thank you!

You are as married as if you married the girl next door. Divorce laws are local. Check them out locally.

Yep, you are married. One thing I found out in this whole process (and one which few people seem to understand unless they have done this) is that marriage and immigration status have little to do with each other, nothing actually. The USA receognizes marriages under Ukraine law so you are married and you do need a divorce. Exactly how you do that is a good question. My fiancee (to be my wife Friday!) was dovprced in Ukraine and she says it was a very simple and easy process as both of them agreed to the terms. They filed the papers, got a court date about a month later and were divorced in one court visit. But she was married, lived and divorced in the same Oblast. She has no idea about your situation but says to check with a Ukraine attorney. Good luck.

Another option is to divorce in the US. Divorce laws are local and divorces do not have to occur in the same country as the marriage. Generally, they can be obtained within the jurisdiction either party currently resides.

So, is it still simple if only one of us agrees and the other does not agree?

It is some places. Divorce laws are local. Check yours.

No fault divorce laws exist.....

I can find the name of an attorney in xepcoh (kherson) who probably can handle this for you remote. He did it for someone else for a couple hundred dollars if I remember correctly


YMMV

Based on what I have heard about Ukrainian law, you may be better off doing it there Brent. If you have any disagreement here at all, the property division alone can kill you (assuming of course no prenup). Pay a few extra bucks and find some attorney that is connected there. I have heard that you can settle out for a reasonable amount that way.
