Texas El Paso where I am at and he is deployed in hawaii

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?

No but you see there is a lot of corruption on the base there where he is at the commander will not release him and everyone is against him and money was given to get him released. Apparently I am the bait and I need to get on my fiancée file to get him out

What you want is called marriage by proxy. Texas is one of only five states that does allow marriage by proxy to be legally performed. The address for El Paso is:

El Paso County Clerks

104 City County Bldg.
El Paso, TX 77901

(###) ###-####/p>

If you want to get married in some other part of Texas, below is a link to a document that tells you where to go to get a wedding license:

http://www.weddingvendors.com/marriage-license-laws/united-states/texas/

You need the proper forms to get married by proxy. Go to the county clerk and tell them you need the marriage by proxy forms. They should know what this is. In some counties, they will give it to you to send to your fiancee and, in other counties, they will send it themselves. In either case, as soon as he gets it he needs to fill it in and send it back to you or to the county clerk, whoever sends it to him. It does not have to be notarized. Then you take that paperwork and some form of ID for both of you such as a birth certificate, driver's license, or a notarized copy of his military ID, back to the county clerks office to get a marriage license. Then you wait the 72 hours and get married. You can go to a Justice of the Peace or someone who is licensed to marry (i.e. a minister). Then get a certified copy of your marriage license and mail it to the unit. Just call the county clerk in your county or whatever county you will get married in and ask them the process, some counties are easy and some are not and some require different things.

I hope this helps.

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.
