Question
Sr.
thank you for taking my question.  
My boyfriend is Mexican (living in Mexico) and I am living in the US.  He never got divorced when he should have.  So now we want to get married and he will start the process of divorce.
My question is this:  If she refuses to cooperate what happens?  Can he still get divorced or will her refusal stop the process ?  If so, how does he move forward with the divorce if she will not cooperate?  He lives in the state of Oax.
Please answer in Spanish !   I appreciate the practice.  

Thanks again

Answer
Hola!

Un divorcio, dependiendo del caso concreto, puede tardar hasta poco mas de un aņo.

Esto depende si ambos estan de acuerdo o no.

Si ambos estan de acuerdo y no hay hijos, el divorcio es administrativo y tarda un mes.
Si hay hijos, seis meses.

Si no hay acuerdo, un aņo aproximadamente.

El divorcio administrativo es ante el Registro Civil donde se casaron.

El divorcio necesario es ante el Juez de lo Familiar de la zona donde vivan.

El divorcio puede pelearse si hay motivos para ello, es decir, una causal de divorcio segun la ley civil en Oaxaca.

Si no hay causal, no puede divorciarse. Si no puede divorciarse,  cualquier otro matrimonio en Mexico o el extranjero es nulo desde el origen.

Debe hablar con ella para conseguir un acuerdo.

Cualquier duda, quedo a sus ordenes.
