I understand what you are saying about PA laws. My point is, i got married under mahindu law but i did not register it to any institute.
So i do not even have my marriage certificate with me. My in laws said they will register marriage to government institute for records but before registerring my marriage, problems started and we never registered my marriage.
I came to US after 6 months of my marriage and I was thinking that my in-laws will register my marriage and i will have marriage certificate available, thats why i kept my status as married.
Now if I say I am married, i do not have any legal document with me but at the same same time I have marital status as married in my H1B documents. So if someone ask me about my marriage evidences, I dont have any.
For my next H1B visa extension or new H1 visa, if i say I am married or divorsed, I donr have any proof. I can say I am single, will that be a problem.
I am sure my in-laws will not help me in getting any kinnd of documents. Please suggest, what I should do inn this circumstances, should i keep my status as married always without being married?
