Princeton Junction, NJ asked in Family Law and Immigration Law for New Jersey

Q: I don't have a solid proof but I think my husband has married another woman he is cheating me on with. What do I do

He has been cheating on me for a long time and I found out in March. He separated his room in December. We had a good friendly relation but he was verbally abusive when he use to get mad. He wanted this marriage to be without any physical relation and not disclose any reasons and I tried hard to work it out despite that. He started getting distant even as a friend and I found out the whole time he was auditioning someone else and causing frustration by withholding affection so that I leave and he can play victim. He is an only child and his mom is also obssessed with him. We live with his parents. He brough me to the US around 2.5 years ago. Threatens to divorce me but hasn't done anything so far. I wanna know do I need proofs? If he actually married her religiously, is it legal? I am an immigrant. I would like a family lawyer's answer who practise immgration law. Thanks

A: Depending on your current immigration status you may be eligible to file for VAWA or self petition to remove the conditions of your green card. I am an immigration attorney and file simple dissolution of marriage petitions for clients. I suggest you look for an immigration attorney in your area who does the same. You will need to call various attorneys in your area.

A: You may initiate divorce proceedings as it would be untenable to continue maintaining a marriage that has graduated into a sad veneer of a loving and harmonious union.
