Q: Legal immigrant married to a US citizen husband wanting to get her pregnant against her will refusing to provide pills.

Also, wife is a green card holder. She's currently unemployed and can not afford it. Does husband of one (1) year, have right to refuse his obligation to get her pregnant against her will? Can she file a complaint and get her husband to provide contraception?

A: Your question is confusing. I would encourage her to reach out to the many local organizations that can assist with free or low cost birth control if this is something that she is seeking. There is nowhere to file a "complaint" against a husband who is not being a "good" husband. All she can do is file for divorce if she is not happy and satisfied with the relationship.

Good luck to her!
