    My wife came from Vietnam on 10/01/07 with a fiance visa.

    I married her on November 13 2007 in Arlington County, VA court (civil law)

    She just completed her biometrics appointment on 1/11/08

    It will take 90 days to get her work permit.

    It will take 6 to 8 months for her first green card which should be sometime in late April or to June 08.

    It's a very volatile marriage and we are completely incompatible! After 3 months of marriage, I'm at my wits end. I want out!

    I don't think I qualify for anullment of marriage so I'll have to seek legal help.

    Does anyone know what I have to look forward to in terms of cost, time, and division of property.

    I want to do this as amicably as possible, but I do expect a fight.

    Thanks kindly
    As far as I know, anullment could be done if marriage was a fraud since the very beginning. So basically one of you should admit the fact that you have commited crime. If you want to get divorced, you might try online service, because when I needed wa divorce help , I just spent about 40 minutes for online questionnaire and submitted forms. After that the hearing was appointed and I got divorced. However that would work if you need un****ested divorce, keep that in mind.

    My advice to you is this. If you can't be her husband, then be her best friend. More than likely she is overwhelmed and confused. Explain how you feel to her, and find out what she wants to do. She my very well want to go home to Vietnam?

    Do not abuse her, instead comfort her and re-build her self esteem. If she ran out barefoot in the snow and stood in front of your car. She is already in deep trouble.

    I agree, most woman are not helpless, I know of a few devious women back home that took their husbands' to the cleaners, but I also know of a few men that did the same, my Ex included.

    SOM, I am led to beleive from previous posts that you have been in a messy relationship, and you have your own experience on Greencard Fraud, and your experience can no doubt be valuable to certain posters, but you must remember each case is unique.

    Tazman already said he doesn't think she married him just for the greencard, and said that he himself is not happy within the marriage. That being so, do you really beleive he can have their marriage annulled on the basis of Greencard fraud.

    Also there is a different side to each situation, I beleive you have a certain amount of knowledge where immigration is concerned, instead of being hostile to Sprintgirl, try sharing a bit of that knowlege with her.

    Everybody seems to be jumping to conclusions. Maybe nobody is understanding this situation. Maybe she loves this guy, but they are just not compatible? Why and how is it determined that she is only seeking papers? She may be hurt and disappointed that he doesn't love her.

    It may be him that's not satisfied, not her. She most likely doesn't know about all these legal tactics. More than likely she is just a simple girl from Vietnam, afraid of being alone in America, and not understanding why her husband doesn't love her.

    SonofMichael, I have read many of your posts. You are a very intelligent man, but sometimes a little too cynical. Why advise the guy to abuse this woman? She may be suffering more than you can imagine already.

    OK I am out of here; I give up on this one. Another person setting himself up to get burnt. I should start keeping a database of all the guys (and some women) that come to this board, ignore my advice and end up in jail and defrauded. &lt;sigh&gt;

    B. Statutory requirements to file:
    Spouse of US Citizen or LPR.
    Entered into a good faith marriage.
    Applicant has resided with USC or LPR , including time living together in the U.S.
    Must have good moral character.
    Was battered or subject to extreme mental cruelty by spouse, OR is the parent of child abused by USC or LPR spouse.
    Vermont Service Center adjudicates I-360s
    Can be pursued affirmatively or while in removal proceeding.
    Evidentiary standard: any "credible" evidence.

    Would lying about academic credentials to acquire employment as a teacher demonstrate good moral character?

    Would lying in a court of law under oath about academic credentials be considered good normal character?

    Would inflating material losses to secure a larger monetary settlement in a court of law demonstrate good moral character?

    Would running a business in the U.S. that does not pay taxes or abide by FTC (Federal Trade Commission) demonstrate good moral character?

    Just wondering how they define good moral character...

    Davdah,
    Thank you for the sound advice.

    I don't want rake her through the coals, but I don't want to get burned either. I like the idea of the self petition for GC as a bargaining chip if she wants it.

    She's not evil by any means. We're just not compatible. I won't mention vawa in our discussions.

    Thanks again

    Tazman, I'm sorry if it sounds that way, but SOM is actually a very well known member on this board for causing trouble, so please don't think everyone is like that.

    I am only trying to explain there is more to just the immigration issue, you have to read or best still seek legal advice as divorces in every State are different and have different grounds for divorce, so its best to find which route to go down.

    It is also best to talk with an immigration attorney and see if they can talk to your attorney that is dealing with the divorce, as often enough divorce lawyers do not know immigration law.
    Your wife upon being served will seek an immigration attorney too or seek help from immigration groups, so it is in your best interest for your attorney to understand that side better.

    Best of luck

    I never dealt with this crackhead before. She is obviously "on the side" of the con artist. People like that confuse people on your situation into delay. But she does say see a lawyer and I say see one IMMEDIATELY. SO there is clear advice. See a lawyer IMMEDIATELY !

    SonofMichael and Sprintgirl

    I can not take advice from two members that have apparently been in an ongoing feud before I came onboard.

    There is a gray area here, and I need constructive advice.

    Thank you very much for all your help.

    Mrs B I will read SeanPatrick and Klinus. Thank you!
