I am a US male citizen. I need to divorce my Filipina wife…

Customer Question
I am a US...

I am a US male citizen. I need to divorce my Filipina wife of 14 months. we married here in OK. I am a 60% disabled veteran of 65, on SS pension. I'm an ex felon. she's 29, has a work permit, green card, and advanced parole. Am i better off to divorce her after she returns to the PR, or should I do it here? She'll probably be going back when college breaks for xmas. She has threatened me, i want her gone thanks.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

OK

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

I have been divorced once before, here in OK no i have not spoken to anyone about it.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I'm an exfelon, dunno if that matters?

Thank you for your question.

You need to do this here in the US because the courts in the Philippines do not grant divorce decrees.

I hope this information is helpful.

I knew that much, thanks. I need to prevent her from getting any part of my govt checks. She married me fraudulently and has only had a green card for about 10 months. I will pull my affadavit of support for her and she has to have it for when her 2 year provisional residency here expires and has to be extended to be 10 years. No way that I'm allowing that to go forward! Does she have a leg to stand on if I file based on fraud? My understanding is that she does not. She's probably going to Phils for a visit a xmas. Would I be wise to file at that point and just move out of our leased apartment, or is one of those things a big no-no?
Lawyer: N Cal Atty, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

If you move out without notice she will probably sue for temporary spousal support, and I dont know what your lease says, but it can cause problems if you break a lease.

Fraud is a basis for divorce in Oklahoma, see

How did she defraud you?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
the fraud was pretending to love me, when what she really wanted was a green card
Lawyer: N Cal Atty, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

You are correct, that is fraud.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
