I'm actually active duty military here at Vandenberg AFB and

Hello, my name is***** I'm actually active duty military here at Vandenberg AFB and my wife is a marine at Camp Pendleton. During the course of our marriage of less than a year, she had become increasingly abusive emotionally and physically until she had actually proceeded to attack me during Christmas; scratching my neck and bruising my face (which I have photo proof of). Now, in terms of filing for a divorce, I'm getting absolutely no response from her. I'm not getting separation pay from the military either being that we are technically still married because she refuses to answer me. All in all, she has caused me a great amount of emotional, financial, and physical pain and grief during the past few months and I'm trying to figure out what my options are in terms of filing for a divorce and/or actually seeking compensation or maybe even suing her if that's an option.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I asked a lawyer about getting my marriage annulled awhile ago but that's the only thing I've asked about so far.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

If an 18-yr old pregnant woman marries her 31-yr old,

If an 18-yr old pregnant woman marries her 31-yr old, illegal, boyfriend, miscarries the baby, and finds out 6 months later he was still married in Mexico, is it possible to annul the marriage? There is more to the story though, she stayed with him, and tried to help him become a legal resident. They had a child, despite their attempts for residency, at a cost of $6,500 through legal and ICE fees, he was deported. She went to Mexico to be with him, where he was able to divorce his first wife, marry the now 23-yr old, and continue to fight to become a legal resident. They had a second child, but upon failure to become an US resident the marriage disintegrated. The woman is back in Iowa now. She knows she must divorce him in Mexico. Does she need to divorce him in America, as well?

I have another question. My husband doesn't think he will

Hello, I have another question. My husband doesn't think he will come with me once I get the green card appointment. For now I have an appointment for fingerprints soon. He wants to have the marriage annulled. Is it possible? Or do we have to get a divorce? He is sober now and thinks it is wrong to stay married to me (God's will according to him) so he wants it annulled. I did research and the only reason he could have is that he was using drugs and maybe not himself when he decided to marry me. I don't think annulment is good for me for my immigration issues but that's what he wants to do, erase the marriage.

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.
