Confused Married in Philippines, divorce here in US possible?

I am presently here in the US with a valid B1/B2 visa. I got married in the Philippines but my husband and I had separated in 2005.The annulment of our marriage is taking too long and too tasking. I have a boyfriend here in the US who is a US citizen and he wants to marry me. Can I file for divorce here in the US instead?

Default Re: Married in Philippines, divorce here in US possible?

I wish to inform you that you may file a suit for divorce in USA if either party is meeting the residency requirement in USA. In this regard generally the residency requirement is 6 months in the state where divorce is to be filed. However as divorce is not allowed in Philippines therefore your foreign divorce may not be valid in Philippines. Your remarriage will be valid under the US laws but under Philippines law as your divorce is not recognized therefore your remarriage may also have similar consequence.
