Tricky situation- need an immigration lawyer

Postby agibabo » Wed, 01 Aug 2012 10:07 am

Hi all,

I know the overall process of applying for LTVP, but my situation is very specific and i hope a lawyer could assist me throughout the process. If anyone can give me a contact info or any useful tip would be greatly appreciated.
My boyfriend has a P1, both coming from the US. Here is the tricky part: I am still married to my ex, have a divorce case pending though.

So you are just looking for ways to throw money away. If you are lucky. Most lawyers will not take on such cases as they know that ICA doesn't pay attention to lawyers and therefore there isn't anything that they can do. In fact, the quickest way to get rejected for PR is to engage a lawyer to "help" you. Been there, done that.

I wonder, how about you apply LTSVP to come under de facto relationship with your boyfriend?

Just a suggestion so I may or may not be wrong.

The DP application specifically asks about previous marriages, and you're supposed to submit certified copies of your divorce judgement. You're out of luck in this case. As far as Singapore is concerned, you're still married to someone else. Once your divorce is finalized, shouldn't be a problem though.

Although, Singapore does have Islamic courts. If you convert to Islam, you can have your ex send you a text message? :)
