Hello. My sister is married to a woman and sadly her wife cheated on my sister. They have almost 3 years together in marriage. My sister is a legal resident in this country which throughout my mom, she got the green card. Now my sister feels that her wife got married to her only for the document. after my sister finds out about this she came to my house because my sister does not feel good living with someone who does not love her. The problem is that my sister feels that her wife will try to use any excuses to get the documents (Green Card) like my sister abandoned their house leaving her alone without family, violence, gay discrimination. My sister noticed it that when she tall on the phone with her wife, she is recording the call. My Sister feels very depressed right now. She cries every day seeing that her wife does not care about her and the only she was looking was the documents. We are looking for a lawyer who speaks Spanish or has people who can help her with this. Can any give me initial advice of what my sister should do to protect her for any attack for her wife ( any sue or option her wife has to lie and get the documents)? Thank you
I understand your situation completely. I speak Spanish as well. Uncontested Divorce in New York State ranges anywhere from $1,500 to $4,000+ depending on the attorney you go to.
Your sister needs to decide if she wants to move on with her life and if she is ready for a divorce. If she says she is ready, than you should contact an attorney that you feel comfortable working with. The attorney will go over all options and benefits with your sister is entitled to under the state laws.
I specialize in Immigration Law, Family Law and speaks Spanish.
