Absolute Divroce w/ non us spouse


#1

Morning

So it would seem that my future ex wife wants to stay in the states and not go back to her country. She plans on filing her own petition b/c i dont intend on assisting her with her own immigration goals. The 3 ways she could file on her own is divorce waiver , extreme hardship waiver , or abuseive spouse wavier? Because I found out she was bisexual and i wasnt comfortable in the marriage anymore because of the deceit she is trying to use all methods to stay in the states. I have evidence incase its needed . Since were in NC the 1 year separation has to be done for absolute divorce

Your wife can file for absolute divorce in NC as long as she has been a resident of the State of North Carolina for the six months preceding the filing of the action and she meets the other absolute divorce requirements:

(1) there is a valid, lawful marriage between you and her
(2) at least one of you separated with the intent to remain permanently separate and apart, and
(3) both spouses have lived continuously separate and apart for at least one year
