I want to return to Korea, but is it possible to get a divorce in the US?
Should I stay in the US until the divorce is over?
If a couple gets married in the United States and then divorces for some reason, it is a common belief that both spouses must be in the United States. In addition, many immigrants want to end their marriage and return to Korea. So, should I stay in the US until the divorce is over? There are many questions such as whether it is okay for the spouse to stay in the United States and only you to go to Korea to proceed with the divorce, whether there are any disadvantages, or whether you should re-enter the United States if there is a trial.
If you return to Korea, but your spouse still lives in the United States and meets the residency requirements in that US state, you may be eligible for a divorce in the US state where your spouse resides. Also, the attorney’s experience may prevent you from having to travel to the United States again to participate in the divorce proceedings. Of course, laws vary from state to state, so it is essential that you seek advice from an attorney to get advice that is right for your situation.
