Noting Separation and Divorce Dates?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

I met my fiancee online and we met/fell in love while I was technically still married. I was only married a short time and my then-husband had moved out and to another town. I haven't seen him since and our divorce was filed and granted 2 years later (2009). There was no drama, we just went on with our separate lives.

Do you think I should make a note of this anywhere in my K1 petition, where I will be adding my divorce paperwork? I don't want it to look like I was cheating or doing anything questionable, like seeing 2 people at the same time. I also am a bit concerned because I was married to a man and now am engaged to another woman. I think it would be weird and maybe out of place to mention why there are 2 years of overlap...but maybe no one would notice or care. What do you think? If I added an explanation, where would I put it? Maybe this is something better posed for the interview portion later?
