I married my husband in June 18, 1999 in the country of Panama. I’m a US citizen. As I was filling for the papers for him to come to California to live with me and his son, he has an affair in Panama and gets a girl pregnant. I went back to panama to try to get a divorce, but I gave him another chance. Now looking back I wish that I could turn back time, and never gave him that chance. It took me a while to forgive him, but I did and I continued on with the papers, now my husband is a resident of California. I brought him to California to live with me 2004. Now I would like to get a dirvorce because he is not doing anything that will help us to better our future. We have a son that’s 7 years old and he’s not even paying child support. How can I get a divorce in California? The only record that shows we are married is Immigration, not the court, so can I go to the local court and get a divorce even thought I got married in Panama? I still have the marriage cirtificate, but its in spanish.
