My daughter was married in March of 2014. The man she married
My daughter was married in March of 2014. The man she married never disclosed information in regard to a serious criminal situation he was involved in with his first wife. She found out this information when she arrived home from work yesterday and noticed legal papers taped to her front door. These papers were addressed to my husband and his ex-wife, stating they were to appear in court within the next 20 days for embezzlement of well over a million dollars from her past employer! She wants out of this marriage and would like to know if an annulement is a possiblity or what advice should she seek?
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...

"For the law educator only"Hello again. So as you know a little history to my case... It appears that my lawyer filed a motion for default on Dec 17... So I am hoping any day now we get that back signed. Just today my husband says he's going tomorrow to hire a lawyer... Now what? I know we discussed it a little bit before, but that was before we made the progress of filing a motion for default. He thinks my sister served him...I had a professional service company do it. Now what?

In reply to the question that I asked
For xavierjd onlyIn reply to the question that I asked on Thursday, September 06, 2012 8:37 EST“I have wanted to get a divorce from my husband for many years,” you mentioned that you could explain the legal principles that are related to the facts that I described. I would be very interested in knowing what these legal principles are. I take it that they would explain why no crime was committed in this case, even though to a layman like me, it seems obvious that the law professor & his partner/my fake husband were attempting to avoid divorce through deception (deliberate deception, since the law professor certainly knew he was lying) in order for the fake husband to inherit land on the basis of a fake marriage against my will.

There is a background to my question,
For xavierjd onlyThere is a background to my question, that I should have mentioned before. In 1996, while in graduate school in England, my ex-best friend (I'll call him Professor Liar) who is an American citizen, asked me to marry his male Taiwanese lover (I'll call him Fake Husband) in order to give him American citizenship. I agreed, both out of a sense of the injustice that same sex marriages were illegal, and out of compassion for my ex-best friend. (My ex-best friend is now a law professor- I'll call him Professor Liar.) The project was a success. Fake Husband received American citizenship in 2001, a few months before September 11, 2001. Since then, the statue of limitations on marriage fraud has run out, although Professor Liar deceived me about that.I have never asked for, nor received, any money or any quid pro quo of any sort. Some people find it hard to believe, but I actually risked a 5 year jail sentence and a $250,000 fine, motivated solely by moral principle and by love and compassion for my ex-best friends. However, another factor in my agreement to risk so much is my deep clinal depression at the time. This deep depression continued after my return to America. On account of my depression, I have been unemployed for seven years. Much of my depression since returning to America is due to the stress of maintaining the marriage fraud, and especially due to the deliberate stress and suffering that Professor Liar and Fake Husband inflicted on me after the statue of limitations on marriage fraud ran out in 2006- which of course I did not know. Professor Liar has asked me to burden myself with many stressful situations, in order to protect Fake Husband, and out of compassion for him. Especially in the last four years, my already serious clinical depression deepened to a life threatening degree, due to the manipulations of Professor Liar and Fake Husband. My psychiatrist of twelve years standing will attest to this.Fake husband and Professor Liar still live together. Professor Liar has written many articles about Gay Rights and Same Sex Marriages. However, although Professor Liar professes, so to speak, to be outraged at the legal barriers to same sex marriages, Professor Liar has never married his male partner, although it is now legal in his state. The reason that Professor Liar has not married his male partner, is that both wanted from the beginning to deceive me into paying the lion's share of the expenses required to maintain the fiction that Fake Husband and I were married. And, in addition, Professor Liar and Fake Husband wanted Fake Husband to remain married to me, so that Fake Husband would inherit the valuable land I possess in Ohio. Due to my worsening depression, their expectation that I would die soon was not unlikely. And, to hurry up the process, they have on one recent occasion tried to give me an undetectable push into my grave. (A high ranking police official, having heard a summary of the pertinent recordings, told me this was his opinion of their intent. But of course, intent is very hard to prove in criminal court. Perhaps, however, it would be adequate to show conspiracy to murder in a civil action. I suppose an expert would have to examine the evidence in detail.)What Professor Liar and Fake Husband don't know is that last year I began a new regimen, and I began to recover from depression. And so, for most of the last year, I have recorded every conversation with them. Virtually all of Professor Liar's outrageous lies are recorded. (And the details of the apparent attempt to end my life are also recorded, in Fake Husband's own voice.)The tax question I asked you was about my case. I hoped Professor Liar had carelessly committed a crime in telling me to lie to the IRS, by claiming that my status was single divorced woman, when in fact I was still married to Fake Husband. Professor Liar told me that this should be done to protect Fake Husband. Naturally, Professor Liar insisted that I continue to acknowledge that I was married for the purposes of my land in Ohio. I did not file as Professor Liar told me to, only because I was then too depressed to make any filing at all. (I had arranged to overpay the IRS, and I don't owe any money- my accountant is helping me now to submit the missing returns.) I presume that Professor Liar intended to blackmail me for my perjuring myself to the IRS on his recommendation.Sad to say, it appears that Professor Liar has been careful not to commit any crime at all.However, I have recorded Professor Liar telling in his own voice a series of outrages lies,
I really need you to direct your answer to the question I asked.
I really need you to direct your answer to the question I asked. Can I refuse to release my medical information to the executor of my husband;s estate? They are not the original filing party, but stepped in after my husband died & before I was ever served. As crazy as this all is, it IS happening
This is both a bankruptcy and immigration matter. I paid forView more legal questions
This is both a bankruptcy and immigration matter. I paid for a friends bankruptcy fees and attended all meetings with the attorneys. During the course oh history and questions, my friend repeatedly stated he is single. He is not. I told my friend I am uncomfortable with the lie, please inform the lawyer. He has yet ti do that. I have a call in now to said attorney. If he lies in court, his case can be stopped, correct? The next issue is his marriage is a sham. A fraud marriage. He is married to s Cambodian woman who has received her Visa, is just awaiting a departure date. Now this man doesn't make the income needed, has no checking or savings account, will now be bankrupt for 10 yrs. Doesn't even own a car? How can he bring a wife into this country, whom he met the day before the ceremony, was not there 30 days prior, but one day prior. She barely speaks English. He speaks only English. She is 24, he is 37. They communicated initially via web, but now by text or phone, maybe 10 mins per day. She asked him to marry her. And he us cheating on her, I can prove that. How is this being passed through? What can be done? This is going to be disastrous to both. He is Pentecostal, she is Buddhist., etc, etc
