Hello Judith! No, not at all! I married out of love and have no intention to move to the US again or work there (have abandoned my green-card and will not try to renew it). The man I married was only in it for the money (my money). I bought us a big house and provided for more or less everything. He had a change of heart I assume and he turned into a Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde within a few days after our wedding. To make a long story short, he was not the man I married at all. I have not been to the US since Dec. of 2009. I left for Sweden and I have to get a divorce somehow. My problem is that my ex and I are not on speaking terms since my departure (Dec.2009) so, I have difficulty interpreting TX divorce law...i e knowing whether the marriage has been annulled after not being in the same country for 3 1/2 yrs? All I need is a divorce. To answer your question (my daughter is 24 and her father is an American citizen that has resided in Sweden since her birth). All I have is this information from the internet.
