What about the fact that we were not married in the states?
Will I need any documents? We also have children, 7 and 9 who are with me 10 months of the year. Would this pose a problem?
What about Marriage license from Dominican Republic?
How do I go about filing?
I moved to the states 6 years ago from the Dominican Republic, I have not gone for my naturalization interview which means I am not a 100% citizen yet. But, I am legal to work and live here.Would this pose a problem to an attempt to divorce?
