I was married roughly 5 years ago in Pakistan, filed for my spouse at the time...however prior her K3 expired during our separation(never filed for adjustment of status or anything). She was overseas in Pakistan when it expired. Now it appears I will be marrying again (not the same person :) ). My question is if I file for her will they request my divorce documentation from the previous marriage(just trying to get things ready)...honest to goodness I find it a bear to obtain that as I did mail letters of divorce to the town council there, after 3 month the divorce was final but they said they don't send the documentation.

I plan to file the I-130 for her.

Thanks for the help and sorry for the ranting.

You will require proof of the termination of any prior marriages for any of the people involved.

if your Ex-wife is still in US as a result of her K3 (even legally divorced),it is going to be really hard sponsoring your new partner.i wish you good luck Bhaa ;)

As stated above her K-3 expired while she was in Pakistan, nothing was filed further. She has not been in the US since (As far as I am aware). So what exactly do I have to be concerned with?

My divorce occurred in Pakistan as there was no where for me to file any documentation here. If there is please do tell me where as I have no marriage certificate for USA. I never married her here. I sent my divorce letter to her and the Union Council. Anyone have advice how I can get the Union Council in Pakistan to send me a divorce decree?

Did you read the rest of my post? I also asked how do I deal with the Union council to get this?

Yes - of course they will request divorce documentation. Without it, sending petition doesn't make much sense.

That's what I figured. Now my issue is how I can get the document...sigh.

i think both the parties have to be in the same country for the divorce finalization.better if you go get it from Pak if you were married there.i am not 100 percent sure to be very frank.

Moving this topic to the Asia South forum as the OP is asking how to obtain copies of his divorce documentation from Pakistan prior to starting the CR-1 process and is more likely to get knowledgeable responses there


“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

Either you have to go or your family member to the union council. They will be able to provide you with the divorce decree. If you face some trouble then a little GREASE :devil: will solve your problem and speedup the process.

Since I don't live in Pakistan (tickets are not cheap either), if I can not find a reliable relative (my luck that my family isn't all that), what would you recommend? Would it be possible to hire someone (again trust then becomes the issue)?

you must have some of your friends there. Try to talk to them, everything is possible in Pakistan if you have good connections. what about your new in-laws.

Hire a Family Court Lawyer and He/She should be able to process on your behalf and get the Divorce papers you needed.

Otherwise, find someone in your family OR as suggested by "baqir" in the last response to have your in-laws get it done from Union Council.

Now a days Union Council are not processing documents as the approval staff is not available due to new Baldia setup issues in Sindh-Karachi. I am not sure about other States in the Country.

The good thing is I know my divorce is final. I just need the paper from them. I will find someone I suppose (family is probably out of the question, especially ex in laws).

Thanks

I wouldn't ask my new in laws of this just doesn't feel right. Surprisingly I don't have good connections. Unlike other folks who have normal families, unfortunately I will leave it at that.

I will try though.

Thanks.
