    Hey,
    I just filed an I-751 and I now need to separate from my wife. Does anyone know the length of marriage after which spouse can ask for spousal support because I know the longer you stay married, the more likely you will pay alimony.

    Also, ARQU or any I-751 people, please email me at mbafrc7@hotmail.com, I have something to ask, as well.

    Thanks

      Hi
      Alimony is based on lot of factors like both parties' income, standard of living (together after marriage), length of marriage (at least 3 yrs or more), having kids and joint properties after marriage. If your spouse is self-sufficient to support herself then there are not many chances for you to give her support after short marriage. If you seek divorce by mutual consent then you both will decide and set an amount of support or any other condition... I hope this helps you little bit...

        Halalai, What state are you in. It makes a difference. every state and county has its own criteria to be met. it does not have to be 3 years to receive spousal support. However length of marriage is a consideration for a Master or Judge going outside of the guidelines in many cases to reduce the award. Self sufficient doesnt always mean that the spouse wont recieve it. There is something called entitlement in most states. If she can prove certain conditions about you leaving the marriage she could get a favorable decision. On the other hand if you can prove she is not entitled on certain grounds you can dismiss support petition. Each state has its own specifics. Spousal support generally will remain until a final divorce decree is rendered. if there is enough time into a marriage, credit will be given towards alimony pendite or alimony

          Jostali:

          I can't believe you don't have the couth/uncouth to start a B. S. post that you are concerned about the breakdown of your marriage.

          One would expect to see comments such as "I love my wife," or "I want to work out our differences."

          Instead, you get right to the point about your only concern, which is the Green Card.

          I would dissuade all USC's from marrying an alien. How can a USC really be sure it's not all about the Green Card?

          The USC has to go through more than a two year "trial" period, wondering the whole time if his/her spouse is gonna run off when s/he gets the Permanent Green Card.

            Josephine.... I don't see how so many people have enough trust to do it. Trusting is hard enough, then you see the examples on this board alone where the trust was so misplaced. Acckkk.

              People like Jostali is shame to immigrants and I don't blame when people hate immigrants and I don't blame when people protest in front of 26 federal plaza/NYC about stopping immigration forever because people find it root of all the problems we have is because of loop holes immigration rules.

                If I knew then what I know now, I would not have even given my husband the time of day.

                Even good faith marriages fall apart. A USC would have to be NUTS to take financial responsiblity for an alien for up to 10 years.

                      Aguilla, pardon me? I was responding to Josephine's post and besides that this is an open forum with many prior posts having had little to do with strictly immigration matters. When someone speaks of marriage, green card, etc. and their main concern after getting green card is how much alimony they will owe I DO think there's a problem and that is definitely a problem related to immigration issue.

                        Hi Pasha. Every state/county has a guideline. It goes by income. The domsestic relations/family division has a written guideline that you probably could purchase. There is one for child support and one for spousal support. The judge or master however has authority to go outside of the guideline accordiingly to certain "RULES" which have to be cited for the case. If the petitioning spouse has an imaginative enough lawyer, they will bring out notarized signed copy of the
                        I-864 protion where the sponsered immigrant/household member signed in parts 1 &3 about what their obligation was. and ask that to be entered as evidence to request support , regardless of what the other party made. The sponsered immigrant has generally forgotten or is not even aware that they have contracted to do this. Take a look.. It will make good reading for some and others will read it and weep.

                            Hi Pasha, Sorry, yes thats correct. I was speaking about the I-864-A . The 2 cases that I saw this work had 864-A. So you will not find it on the 864.
