ANNULMENT, SEPARATION, & DIVORCE

Question #84:
ANNULMENT:

I HAD BEEN MARRIED TO A MAN FROM IVORY COAST AFRICA. DURING OUR IMMIGRATION INTERVIEW IT WAS TOLD TO ME THAT HE WAS MARRIED IN HIS COUNTRY. MY HUSBAND DENIED THE MARRIAGE AND SIGNED I BELIEVE TO BE A FFIDAVIT STATING HE HAD NEVER BEEN MARRIED IN HIS COUNTRY. SEVERAL WEEKS WENT BY AND A RESPONSE WAS GIVEN BY IMMIGRATION STATING THAT HE IS MARRIED IN HIS COUNTRY. CAN I GET AN ANNULLMENT OR A DIVORCE SINCE WE ONLY BEEN MARRIED FOR 8 MONTHS OR BEING THAT HIS MARRIAGE TO ME IS VOIDED MUST I STILL GO THROUGH THE PROCEEDINGS?

Answer:


If you can prove that your spouse was married already at the time he married you, you have grounds for an annulment.
You must file for an Annulment -it is not just voided.
If you are located in the NYC metro area, please call me to arrange for a meeting to discuss the matter in greater length.
