Question #5

Please Help: I’m a 39-year-old American male who married a Filipino woman in the Philippines in June of 1997. After the marriage, I went back to the US, and my wife stayed in the Philippines while the immigration paperwork was processed. Everything seemed to be going great until the final step of the immigration process when my wife applied for her US Passport in June of 1998. Since I sent her the money for the passport and Visa (approx. $600), I haven’t heard from her, and when I call her family’s house, they act as if they never heard of her (or me for that matter). I’m afraid what has happened is that once my wife got her US passport, she dumped me, somehow entered the US, and is doing God knows what. So my question is, how can I get this marriage annulled? Do I have to go back to the Philippines, or can I do it in the US? Any help would be much appreciated.

Question #6

I heard friends of mine saying that it may be possible to have a marriage annulled if the marriage lasted less than one year. I don’t think it is true, but it is worth it to try. I couldn’t find anything about this so far. Well, is it true? THANK YOU!

Question #7

At a young age, I had gotten married in Las Vegas but never really lived with her. It was one of those things you may say that you do at a young age and think that instead of going steady, being married was sweeter. Anyways, as I stated, we were never really living together like a normal husband and wife more like a boyfriend/girlfriend thing. We had eloped and never told anyone thinking that in a few years will get married anyway. Within five months of the marriage, the relationship ended, and within a couple of months, I had filed for a dissolution of marriage. My question is there any way I can get this marriage annulled even if I had filed for divorce already? I know that after a year, if no one had filed to contest this dissolution of marriage that the divorce is in effect. Six years have passed from the time of the divorce, but since the marriage was not a marriage is there some way to have the marriage, and the divorce annulled from my records? Thanks

Question #8

My friend has been married for 10 months. He has decided after trying marriage counseling that he doesn’t want to continue in this marriage. The problem is, he owns his own business and doesn’t want to lose it to his wife. He has asked his wife to leave, and she will not. These problems have been going on since the first day of the marriage. Does he have any recourse? What are the criteria for annulment?

Question #11

My wife abandoned me two years ago (after eight years of marriage). She called me at work saying she wants to take off for a month in Florida to think, but she wants a divorce, and we’ll talk when she returns. After a month, I tried to get in contact with her through her family, but she wouldn’t return any of my messages. (I later found out that she was really in Puerto Rico with a male companion) I had not heard from her for over two years when someone knocked on my door at 10:30 pm to give me a Summons (with Notice). Does it seem that the summons is an action for divorce on the grounds: DRL*140 (1)?? Does she seek an equitable distribution of marital property ?? What does DRL*140 (1) mean???? and do you have any advice?? I never went through anything like this. And I’m desperate. I have twenty days to reply to the summons. Please email me as soon as you can.

Question #15

 I have been married now for about three years, and I have had a problem with my husband. We have not been able to have sex in the past years. I understand that this is a case for an annulment since he is not capable of getting an erection. However, I am not 100% sure if it is grounds for annulment. Until now I felt bad for not wanting to stay married to him, but I have reached my limits in understanding since he is not even trying to improve the situation…what do I do and how do I go about this situation?
