Complicated divorce matter involving Indian citizens living in USA
« on: September 18, 2017, 07:58:06 AM »
I am a domestic law attorney in Georgia, United States.

I have a client who was a Pakistani citizen and now an American citizen.

She is married to an Indian citizen who is residing in the United States and both are Muslim.

The husband has obviously sought a marriage with my client in order to obtain permanent resident/U.S. citizenship status through the marriage to my client and now that it appears that he will obtain such status, he has filed for divorce here in Douglas County, Georgia, United States.

My client is noticeably upset about the fraudulent marriage and the breaking of vows and is seeking advice here. I have told her that there is little a court will do here under such a short-term marriage (about two years).

However, as he is still an Indian citizen and retains significant property in India, I am wondering if there might be some relief that could be sought in Family Court or Maintenance (?) Court in India.

Thank you for any assistance.

she could file in India for maintenance only if the marriage had taken place here in India.

there is no relief for her from Indian courts, as the court will not accept the matter for want of Jurisdiction.
