Apply for H4 after divorce in US

Hi,

We got married in India on 2009 and then got divorced in USA on 2014.. When I renewed my passport from Indian Embassy in New york last year on 2016, they said they couldn't remove my spouse's name from my passport without INDIAN DIVORCE DECREE. They did not accept the US DIVORCE DECREE though it was notarized.

Currently we want to get back together and live together. But he is now in India. Can he still apply for H4 visa since my passport has him as spouse's name. Or should we again get remarried in India and then apply for H4. But , if there is no INDIAN divorce decree how can we get remarried in India, when we are not divorced per Indian law.

Please help or let me know how I can work with one of your lawyers on the same.

Thanks

Tricky situation. Better consult an immigration firm for advice.
