Hi I have got married in India in 2008 and I came here in Newzealand in 2013 along with my partner and she came here as a student and I came here as a dependent visa .Due to dependent category- in 2017 I have got my Residency .But things were changed a lot and she decided to separate from me .she called her parents from India and they said to me that I can leave home. I left home. After that I applied my Permanent residency as a single person.My father has died -(cancer) and I got stuck in India due to that and lost my job .Then I applied for MSD Job as my partner was working with that but I got opportunity in Wellington due to tenure was very short and was secondment she convinced me to come back to Auckland and drop her for few days and due to covid 19 situation I tried to help her but when I came back home she totally changed her attitude and said she will never ever give me divorce and needs money for divorce.I was really shocked to know that she was thinking like that way beacause when we seperated there was no balance was due still I was keep on paying her 2 years internet bill. Now she is needs money and said she will not give divorce untill I will not pay her 20000$.
