Hi, my husband bought a house in the year of 2000. We married a year later with our son being born in 2001. During the marriage till now (I am a housewife), my husband kept and keeps and abuses control over the finances. This year he put the family house on the market during the summer while I and the son were in the Czech Republic, my place of birth. The house was bought in a delapidated state and rebuilt during the marriage from 2001 to 2006. When I came back from CZ I got upset and my husband took the house of the market. However, he continues to pressure the sale. As ridiculous as it sounds he claims that his neighbor is at fault and he does not want to live next to him. I have been having problems with my husband during the whole marriage, but since it is an international marriage I stayed because of custody issues. I would not even mind moving to a different house, but I have a feeling my husband, who is very manipulative, wants to také control over my interest in the house if I agree to his proposals...he wants to do a contingency sale. Would this be safe thing to do or would not?

Ive been separated from my husband for the last three years.

I've been separated from my husband for the last three years. Every two years I go overseas to visit my family in Europe. My husband doesn't want to sign the papers to renew my son's passport (he is 12 years old). I was awarded a temporary physical custody of the children and we share legal custody. I want to stay in Europe for 3 weeks. How can I get a new passport for him??? Thank you. Tory

I married a woman in Bangladesh about 4 years ago. We had been corresponding for about 8 years. She contacted me on an international marriage website. When we met in person, once in 2005 and again in 2008, it seems that she was relunctant to get marry and come to America with me. It didn't become clear until later, that her son pressured her into marrying me just so he could come to America to attend college. My wife and I have never consummated the marriage. Is it possible for me to have the marriage annulled, since 4 years has passed and she still haven't come to America?
