breakdown for the marriage. There has been no intimacy going on between us, and she is making more money than me. I filed for a counter claim, for cruel and inhumane treatment. I have asked numerous times for spousal support and attorney fee. After four times of attending court and talking with both attorneys, finally I have came to conclusion that I don’t want any spousal support and attorney fee.

My question is any problem for(me or she) this settlement offer? its affeting any way my immigration status ?
