Married a foreign national in 2014 and this guy only married me for green card and that was a hard thing for me to swallow when everything was laid down on me ( I love him that's why I married him not knowing he has another intention ) He got his TEMPORARY Greencard last August 2015 and as soon as he got it he left me for his country. He came back after 7months and as soon as he came back he wanted to separate and divorce me. when he was away for his country he and my mom talked that my mom will help me financially while he was away, and now that we are separated and even when he came back he didn't pay back my mom. Until now I am in debt and I am stuck with our bills (i.e. rent , electric and cable) My mom has her own bills to pay and still in debt because of her past Chemotheraphy . That was my mom's pension that was used to help me pay the bills when he was away. I need to pay my mom back and I can't believe that this [email protected]$$$* is living the life while he eluded the DUI cases against him before and his deportation removal in which I wasn't aware off when I married him. Please someone tell me I can ask spousal support from this horrible man ?
