Filed: Timeline

Hello,

This is all new to me, and I can see I am in for a project but she is definatly worth it.

I hope someone can help me with my problem.

I was divorced back in 1987, she got the divorce I had a copy of the papers but they were lost in Hurricane Katrina. I thought I knew where she got the divorce but when I called the court they have no record of it.

I have no contact with my ex, have not since 1987, she is remarried, I have tracked down her new name, her husbands name even the town they live in but can not get an addy or phone number for her.

I need these papers for my forms, I don't know if I need to get divorced again, will the embassy think I just got divorced?

Please if you have had this problem or any suggestions I am now stuck on what to do next.

Thanks in advance

Divorces are part of public records. Try a search within the state ur X is/or was a resident of or the state in which u got divorced. If u r military, u had to provide a copy to the finance people so there should be a copy there. If i remember right on the income tax form I had to provide a divorce date and location. u should be able to get a copy of ur 87 tax return but it may take a while. Good luck, Payato

Did you use a lawyer?? To get my divorce papers (in Canada) I contacted the lawyer that I used and they got them for me (from the court) Cheers


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1

I can sympathize. Getting a copy of my long form birth certificate is taking 4-6 months because of Katrina.

I know in Texas if you do not have the case number for the divorce, there is a fee that they charge to do a search and find the record. Maybe Louisiana has a similar service?

Also state law in Louisiana recently changed sot hat you can get vital records are several locations throughout the state rather than just the vital records in New Orleans. I do not know if it only applies to birth certificates, but I was able to get a short form of my birth certificate certified from an office out of Lake Charles without waiting.

go to anywho.com do a name search for the number... also if you know her address you can do a reverse search to see who lives there...

You'll need her new last name... but I would also search in her old/your last name...you never knowshe might be still using it for somethings..

Thanks for some of this info maybe I wasn't clear enough, I wasn't actually divorced in New Orleans it is just that my divorce papers were there,

I thought I was divorced in Phoenix, AZ, I now live in Las Vegas< NV and she now lives in North Carolina.

The possibility of tax returns are interesting, but we did file separatly in 1987 so I may not have put it on my return, especially if the papers came after I filed.

If you know the location u filed, call the county court house and they will direct u to the correct number or office. Most states now, u can search for ur case number once in the county website. There are lots of websites (pay of course) that specialize in finding this type of information for u. Giving them ur name, ur X's name and the county should not take long and the court should have records of the divorce. Good luck, Payato
