My girlfriend has been separated from her husband for many years in her home country of the Russia. They will not grant her a divorce because the husband will not agree to sign to it. If she moves to the United States does she have any options to divorce him? He has been physically abusive to her, and I fear her being stuck in the situation. Thank you.
