Divorce and difficult husband

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but here is the low down. My friend (immigrant) and her husband have been married for 3 years, she’s been in the country for a little over 2. Last year they started having issues because he got mad at her for bringing up wanting kids. After it turned into a kind of controlling relationship.  She was afraid to get into arguments with him or even voice her opinion. He is an alcholic and uses the card that he’s a “disabled” veteran against her. She once told him she would call the police, he was having a party late and would not turn down the music even though she had work in the morning. When she said she would call the police he said “they will not believe you, they will take my side since I am a veteran, and I can get you kicked out of the country”.  He sobered up the next day and apologized.  Just not long ago he was again up late, being loud and drunk. She had work in the morning but he told her to off. She then moved out. They filed for the I-751 in August. And she is worried he will try to her over or how this will affect her case. She works two jobs, she loved the guy and really wanted a family but he kinda shattered all that

She can file with a divorce waiver if they separate. He has no "power" or anything over her. Tell her to read up on things.
