About my divorce


Hello all, I have a question about my personal issue. I was married to Belgium lady and i got citizenship from her. I didn't applied for divorce and i get married from my native country. I want to applied my wife to Belgium under my citizenship, she (Belgium lady) don't want to give me divorce. I want divorce from her and she threats me to put inside jail. What i need to do? Is it impossible to get divorce from her?


Pay for proper legal advice. It's cheaper than bad free advice.

You are married and you've married a second time without divorce?

That's bigamy.

That's bigamy .......

and in the circumstances you can look forward to both a jail sentence and the loss of your Belgian citizenship. And remember, your Belgian wife only has to inform the authorities of the circumstances and they will act.

Yes. I think I'd agree with "J" above on this one. Assuming that this post isn't just a wind up, you need proper legal advice.

You have likely committed a criminal offense that is punishable with between 5-10 years in prison, and now you're trying to bring your new wife to Belgium to benefit from Belgian your citizenship.

Also, as "BECASSE" notes, your existing wife just needs to make a simple phone call to inform the police what you're doing and you will probably be arrested.

Best of luck.
