was anulled because I told the judge that although I had no proof, my ex had another wife in Egypt before he married me, and was a bigamist. My ex signed the annulment papers and is now filing a motion to amend it to a divorce
saying he didn't understand what he was signing, (because an annulment would destroy his immigration case - he is almost a citizen secondary to being married to me). I had a lawyer for the annulment, but am pro se
for this motion he filed. I made a very good case in my written response/opposition to motion. My ex's lawyer called me and said the judge believed me and he knew the judge was not going to amend it to a divorce. He said my ex would have no choice but to appeal because otherwise he would be deported because again, his pending citizenship was based on our marriage and if our marriage was annulled, his immigration case would be destroyed. I paid 5.000 for the annulment. My ex paid nothing and had no lawyer for it. He got the lawyer after to file the motion to amend to a divorce. Anyway, when his lawyer called me today, he insinuated - he would not come right out and say it - he insinuated that he would tell my ex to compensate me for the 5.000 I spend on the annulment in exchange for me signining a letter or affadavit of some type telling the judge that I was not opposed to amending the annulment to a divorce.
I am wondering - is his lawyer trying to entrap me? If I agree to sign an affadavit or paper telling the judge I do not oppose amending the annulment to a divorce, and I sign this paper because my ex sends me the 5.000 to compensate me for the legal fees I paid for the annulment, can his lawyer then claim I was blackmailing or extorting my ex and have me arrested, or some other action to hurt me? Or am I allowed to say, ok, if you'll reimburse me for the 5k in legal fees I paid for our annulment, I will agree not to oppose amending the annulment to a divorce?
