Am I eligible to remarry without filing for divorce since the marriage took place in the Philippines? 2 Answers as of September 12, 2016

I was married in the Philippines and migrated in the US with my husband. We separated a few years later, so when I filed for my citizenship, I was already separated. I've been separated from my husband for more than 10 years now.

Absolutely not. Under US law if you are a married person anywhere in the world you are a married person in the US. If you want to marry someone else, you must get a divorce which you can do in the US.

You still need to go through the legal steps to get a divorce judgment terminating your marriage. Please meet with an experienced family law attorney to assess your options.
