Dear Mr Barrister,
Thank you for your kind answer. My direct email is***@******.*** .
I actually lived in DC and MD much longer and before the marriage
: from 2006. I became US citizen in January 2011. We were living in CA for a few months in 2013 during which we got married. I live now in DC from May 15, 2014 , i.e. the day that I came back to USA from Brazil.
I think to have read somewhere that for marriages celebrated in CA it is possible to denounce the other side for abandonment
in cases like this. I repeat: she is Brazilian and we moved there for a few months after the marriage, then I came back to USA, meaning DC, for work and she was supposed to follow me in a few weeks. 7 days after I left, she sent me a short email that everything was finished and she was going to never see me again and goodbye. So, I never went back to Brazil and have no idea where she is now. I think that she is still living there, for what I know.
Fact is that I am American, she is not. She is able to sustain herself and we always have paid each our share of what we did. So, no debts. Well, I sustained her while she was unemployed, but I am not going to fuss about it.
I am interested in closing this chapter as quickly as possible.
I read somewhere that in CA law it is possible in these cases to present the papers, send it to her to the last known address, that after 15 days is considered received for the California law. Then I can ask for divorce.
In order to do start this process I need an address in CA. So, basically I need a lawyer who can just allow me to use his or her office address for my official CA address for this story.
If you agree, for a fair amount of money, I can be your client.
What do you think?
