After conversion I rushed into a marriage with an Algerian brother. I married him somewhat unwillingly but wanted to please others who were pressuring me to accept. We got married in Algeria and consumated it there. Later, I returned to the US to file for his visa but there were too many problems and we decided to get a divorce before he had a chance to join me here in the US.This is where it gets confusing: I was recently contacted by the former brother and he said he never actually filed the paperwork and he wanted to go forth with it now. Am I divorced?
