I'm a Mexican National that's married to a Mexican National.
I'm a Mexican National that's married to a Mexican National. I live in the US and he is lives in Mexico. I have a divorce pending in Mexico but he won't sign unless I come back. My status won't allow me to turn to Mexico to go to court. Does the Fast- Track law allow me to still get the divorce without his signature. There is no property involved but I do have a son that was from a different father that he adopted. We have been separate for 3 years.

I am a psychoanalyst and have a patient who is Swedish and
I am a psychoanalyst and have a patient who is Swedish and married to a woman (for 30 years) who is from Prague. He is planning to divorce her and she knows this. They have lived in Washington DC for 12 years and have a house there. His term of employment in the US is to come to an end in August 2014. His wife has pleaded with him to remain in the USA until she can get a green card. (Their two daughters were raised in the US and are US citizens). His wife understands that he will file for divorce but he has yet to do so in the US. He tried to divorce her from Sweden (she even signed the papers) but this was done, basically, online and was not binding. His assumption is that when he leaves the USA in August that his wife will have no choice but also to leave. At contest--above all else--is their home in Washington DC which is worth a considerable amount.So, to my questions:1. He contends that if he leaves the USA, so must she, and that she could not divorce him in the USA. As they were married in Prague, he argues, any divorce would have to be activated abroad. In any event, he does not wish to divorce her in the USA as he thinks he would not get a good settlement.2. I am in doubt about this thinking. Even if one is not a US citizen, even if one does not have a green card, even if his wife has to leave the country, does this preclude her (or her lawyers) from divorving him in the USA? They have lived her, they own property her, and she claims that now--after 12 years--she qualifies for a green card.3. Can someone in process of applying for a green card still be deported, or, does her status allow her to contest this for some time to come?4. And lastly, even assuming she has to leave, can her legal team not put a quash on the sale of their DC home on the grounds that it is partly hers? If she cannot divorce him in the USA, can she still claim under US law that she has a right to this home?I think you get the gist of my questions. My patient, I think, believes he can leave the USA, force his wife to follow him, and divorce her later in Europe when the home could be sold. I think she has rights under US law even if not a citizen and that she could put a block of sorts on the sale of the home for an indefinite period of time.I look forward to your reply
