Is my marriage legal? : LUSENET : Immigration Law - Law Offices of Michael Boyle : One Thread

I recently married a man who came to the U.S. illegally. He convinced the person who approves the marriage liscense to let him slip through the cracks. After a few days of living together, he left me. I would like to get a divorce but I'm not sure that we're even legally married. Thnka you for your help.

Your marriage probably is legal. Immigration status has nothing to do with whether someone can contract a valid marraige. If you want a divorce or annulment, you will need to get a divorce lawyer and apply for one.
