My husband and I got married via proxy marriage while he was

My husband and I got married via proxy marriage while he was overseas. I wanted to know if I am eligible to receive a marriage annulment based on the fact that my husband was just using our marriage as a benefit while he had a continuous sexual relationship with a Koran National. I recently discovered that for the whole marriage he has been mantaining a sexual relationship with a civilian while i was in Military training stateside. He also took advantage of our marriage to receive housing where i did not reside and therefore he was not entitled to it. He brought his mistress from Korea to this residence where they continued their relationship. I arrived at this residence in July and he since then has been pretending to be deployed in Afghanistan in order to preserve his extramarital relationship. Aside from the adultery with this civilian, he has posted adds online seeking a relationship and advertising this house (on post family housing) as his own amoung other despicable acts towards me and our marriage. He has also commiterd fraud on both his car insurance and federal and state taxes knowingly claiming he is single in order to pay less money (he is under the impression that he receives more money on his tax return). I have discussed all matters with him and he laughs it off like there is nothing I can do about it. Everything from adultery to fraud to serious financial delinquency and domestic abuse, he thinks he can slide by. Please let me know if there is anything i can do. Thank you for your time.

Options on Merchant Cash Advances my company took out

Hello - I'm just looking for information about potential options I have regarding some Merchant Cash Advances my company took out 6 months ago. My business is in a state of hardship and unable to continue payments. One of the companies in particular has become very abrasive, they called my mother in law stating I was a crook and stole their money and they are going to have me sent to jail....He's telling me I'm a criminal and committed financial fraud because I took out more than 1 advance and that if I don't pay he's going to have me prosecuted.Minnesota is where my business is. The merchant cash advance companies are located in other states.

We recently made a loan on some property we had. As soon as the broker heard the loan was ready to close, he called us and pressured us to agree over the phone to pay him $4750.00 in addition to what was on the worksheet as his fee. The loan closed and he has sent an invoice for the amount wanting to know if we received the check. Is this legal?

I have (had) a partner that committed financial fraud in my

I have (had) a partner that committed financial fraud in my company..and I have been working with the IRS, the Virginia State Police, the Criminal Investigators of the IRS, and had a consult with a Bankruptcy attorney. I have a local attorney who was representing me since December 2015, but THAT IS NOT THE CASE NOW. (And needs to be fired). In hindsight, this case may have become to large for him. The Bankruptcy Attorney suggested I retain an attorney who can go after my ex partner for fraud, and the demise of my company. I have ONE dilemma with an employee who I wish to keep, and she maintains an employee contract through the ex partner. That contract will be up in November of 2016. If I close this company completely, she is blocked from assisting me and he will receive $150K if she fails to comply. I need an attorney immediately. The court cases are fast approaching, and my current attorney continues to work with the partner's attorney to keep getting them postponed instead of having him produce the money owed to keep me in business. Advice?

Law educator only please. Hopefully you remember me

For the law educator only please. Hopefully you remember me somewhat. and my case .. I'm the one who married tha Canadian and suspect marriage fraud and well financial fraud. During this continuance, while still in divorce proceedings and a joint prelim.Injunction in place... My ex sold our home in Canada and had the proceeds of the sale made out in a check to his sister and she deposited it in her bank account and slowly deposited it in his account all to of course try to make himself look broke. Ok, I havewritten proof (the closing statement Canada style,lol) that shows a check made out to her, the net proceeds etc. in the mean while over in his DUI court he was admonished by the court for forging his AA meeting paperwork! So a complaint was lodged againsthim in that court for attempting to defraud the court. Hopefully that will support my claims of his lies and bs in divorce court. What's your take? Got any good strategies? Oh, he also, while trying to look so poor during this time decided to trade his carin (all without any written consent from me) for a car the costs double the payment as before! So that's going to look nice too...

I just discovered that our mortgage broker used false information

I just discovered that our mortgage broker used false information without our knowledge in 2006 to obtain a home loan for my wife and I. We live in CA. I just read in your site that the statute of limitation for the federal government to bring charges is 10 years in this type of cases. Do I have the same time to bring a law suit against my broker for fraud?
