My husband moved to the USA from the UK seven years ago, he
My husband moved to the USA from the UK seven years ago, he now wants a divorce. He also recently became a US citizen but two months after doing so he stopped paying child maintenance. His maintenance payments was arranged and agreed informally between us or in my case I accepted and was happy with what I was receiving. For his application for American citizenship he has to prove to be of a good moral character. I had to notarize a letter to say he was making maintenance payments which showed he was meeting his financial obligations in the UK. This commitment to show good moral character is ongoing I believe and of course now he has US citizenship he has stopped and as my arrangement was informal I have no court papers.
