Not really an immigration...

Not really an immigration question but it is about marrying someonw not from canada

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have been taken? Has any paperwork been filed with the U.S. government?

He was in canada on a temp basis we just went to the court house and had gotten married there.. it was a friend of a friend and his visa was going to expire he gave me a sob story about how bad it was where he was from.. but then like 2 weeks later we had to go to the immigration office and he was detained there and deported as far as i know..

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer about the visa?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Im not trying to get him back in canada i just want to know if im legally married still to this guy or if it was voided because he was deported.. and a deportation officer called me after i left and questioned me and i ended up twlling him about it

I am sorry to hear that this happened.

Unfortunately this is a valid marriage if the ceremony was preformed by a justice of the peace or judge.

So to end the marriage you will need to get a divorce.

Does that fully answer your question?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
