Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be the immigration attorney helping you today.

If she is able to get a l divorce that is considered legal wherever it was done, then it will be considered legal in the US and it would be valid for immigration. However, whether Hong Kong will be able to divorce her will usually depend on whether she actually resides there and whatever other laws they may have related to that . You would have to consult a Hong Kong law expert for that.

Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!

If you are not satisfied with my answer or if I did not understand your question correctly, please ask me for clarification and I will be glad to clarify. Your satisfaction is my goal.
