If your husband does not intend to contest the divorce, you can file for an uncontested divorce provided that you serve your husband with the divorce papers in Mexico in a way which complies with both state law and the applicable law of Mexico. Your husband will also need to go to an apostile or notary at the nearest US Embassy or Consulate to sign the divorce papers before filing. If your husband intends to contest the divorce, then the issue is more complicated. In addition to serving the divorce papers on him as illustrated above, he will also need to gain lawful entry into the United States in order to appear in the divorce proceedings. In New York State, judges in divorce cases require both spouses to be present at each hearing and appearance date, and will only grant a waiver of appearance in extreme circumstances (such as medical emergencies). If you cannot get your husband to agree to an uncontested divorce then you may face some difficulties in getting the divorce completed.
