You're going to need to talk to a divorce lawyer in your area, for advice that you can rely on, based on all of the facts, because there are differences in the law and procedure from one state to the next. One place to find a qualified attorney is our website, http://attorneypages.com
Whether your marriage in Mexico is valid might depend on a number of different things. You haven't said much about your case, including how long ago you were married, how the marriage in Mexico came about, how long (if at all) the two of you lived together after the marriage, and so on.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Answer(s) provided above are for general information only. The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
