Dear All

I want to discuss my situation its urgent, I have found this website from google and it seems to be very good site that's why I am posting my questions. 
I had come to USA in 2018 on IR-I visa and have IR-1 Permanent resident Card. My wife is US Citizen. Its been more than three years since we got married. We have one daughter as well. I want to file divorce as my relationship is not good with my wife because of misunderstandings between us. Most of those misunderstandings are because of my in laws as my wife's whole family is US Citizen. My in laws always interfere between our personal life and they also always put me in pressure and tension. Now I would like to ask following questions:
1- I am planning to move to California alone without telling my wife, can I file divorce in California, right now I have ID of New York. Is that possible to file divorce in CA?
2- Can my wife or my in laws also file a case against me that I move to California without informing my wife? As my wife will be alone when I'll move to CA.
3- I don't want custody of our daughter after divorce. Is it possible that my wife keep our daughter after divorce.
4- I had come to US from Pakistan on IR-1 visa and my marriage was registered in Pakistan not in USA. Is that possible to file divorce without registration of marriage in USA?
Please reply to all above questions its urgent.
Thanks.

1. I am planning to move to California alone without telling my wife, can I file divorce in California, right now I have ID of New York. Is that possible to file divorce in CA? To file in a state you have to be a resident right now yuo can only file in NY. You would have to check the residency time for California then once you fulfill that you can file there.
 
2- Can my wife or my in laws also file a case against me that I move to California without informing my wife? As my wife will be alone when I'll move to CA. No they can't file a case against you. This is the US not prison. And your in laws have nothing to do with it. This is between you and your wife.
 
3- I don't want custody of our daughter after divorce. Is it possible that my wife keep our daughter after divorce. Yes she can have custody if you don't want it. I am sure that's what she would rather have.
 
4- I had come to US from Pakistan on IR-1 visa and my marriage was registered in Pakistan not in USA. Is that possible to file divorce without registration of marriage in USA? A marriage doesn't have to be registered here. You divorce in the state you are a resident of currently.

you need to file for divorce in NY state / to be specific you need to file in the county she lives in not just anywhere in NY

says Buffalo NY here so you need to file in Erie county

and in that state no divorce is final until a year is up

you will need a lawyer and to file for separation 

after a year , the divorce will go thru the court system  and only your lawyer needs to be present 

wife normally has custody of children but you will be ordered to pay support  ( that will start as soon as you leave the House)

the marriage is legal in the US (after all it was recognized as such by immigration)

it didn't have to be registered in the US

Yes but you should be expecting to pay child support.

 

This. If the wife wants to pursue it, or even the judge doing the divorce hearing can initiate child support on the OP... and it can be costly monthly. I know people who spend 1/3 their income just on child support for one child. Hope OP realizes this because not fulfilling child support payments can impact their status I believe, but definitely will impact any thought on citizenship, and can even be jailed for lack of payment.

Leaving your wife and kids without even telling them will look great on your application when you go for citizenship/removing conditions.   

If you are set on divorcing, tell your wife, do not just surprise her by leaving the state and leaving her high and dry with a child.  Does she rely on finances from you in any capacity?  What about the kid?  

 

I just can not fathom someone leaving their child and not thinking twice over a problem with the inlaw.
