Working through divorce as an immigrant

Any time a married couple decides to split up, moving forward can be daunting for both parties. Unfortunately, this is often especially true for immigrants, some of whom may be worried that they will no longer be able to remain in the country afterward. At Kajko, Weisman & Colasanti, our Massachusets law firm understands the different types of unique situations that people in Boston who are getting ready to file for a divorce may encounter.

Whether you are a U.S. citizen who married someone from another country or you personally immigrated to the United States and are afraid of losing your eligibility to pursue citizenship or stay in the country, addressing divorce correctly is essential. For couples in this position, it is also crucial to take a thorough look at the complete picture and realize some of the other divorce-related issues that may come up, such as child support if you have children.

If you are thinking about divorce or are already in the middle of the process, you should take a careful look at any other relevant matters that may affect your life afterward. Furthermore, if you have been subjected to domestic violence, for example, you should not have to be afraid that you are stuck with someone who is abusive because of your immigration status.

If you go over to the section of our website which is devoted to divorce, you can read even more about filing for divorce and some of the issues that may arise with regard to family law.
