Q: Got marry in 2003 wife disappearedin 2005 in 2015 she got a divorce in dominican repliblic and in 2017 she gave me a divorce decree from dominican republic.

A: David’s Answer: DR divorces which lack proper jurisdiction over the other side are not legally recognized in the U.S. Thus, while her divorce decree may make nice wallpaper, it’s invalid if you weren’t a resident of DR at the time nor signed a consent to their jurisdiction.
