Default My filipina girlfriend must get divorced first before i can marry her. i am Austrian

Hello good afternoon, we need your help. I am Austrian citizen and my girlfriend is Philippine citizen she is married in the philippines to an filippino he is not willing to sign the anullment. As she has an American Visa for 10 years our plan is like that:

i got relatives in New York so our plan was to get her withouth the sign of her husband divorced there. My cousin in Queens said thats possible for 1500 dollars a lawyer will make this. but the process will take 6 months. this would not be a problem as she has relatives in Virginia where she can stay. After the six months i would travel to the US and would marry her there. As Austrian goverment accept.

My questions are:

if we marry in the states can she apply a shengen visa there or must she go back to philippines? (problem maybe she would get arrested because of her husband)

Is there any other state where we could make this process of divorce faster. like maybe in Las Vegas?

the last worry i have how can i bring her to Austria after the wedding?
what docs are needed?
do u have any advices for us or any note that could help us?


thanks very much for taking time and listening.
regards

I wish to inform you that a divorce in the United States by a national of the Philippines would not be recognized in the Philippines. As a result, your marriage thereafter in the United States would not be valid in the Philippines and the Filipino spouse may sue for bigamy in the Philippines where it is an offence. You may contact an attorney in Austria and seek guidance in the matter.

In this issue residency requirement is must and in most states it is minimum 6 months. It is always good to seek help from a lawyer in order to deal with all divorce issues.

A Filipino cannot divorce legally anywhere but in the Philippines under the circumstances you outlined.
