Can I apply for divorce in USA? I was married in outside of the USA and have a son. My husband is in India and I live with my son in USA.
You can get divorced in the United States, however, depending on which state you live in, the time periods can vary. In Maryland you must be a resident for at least a year to file for divorce based on living separate and apart. You may have immediate grounds to file for divorce, however these would be based on facts you have not already stated. Without grounds for an immediate divorce, you must wait for at least a year and a day to file the paperwork. If custody is an issue, you must wait at least 6 months to establish residency.
