My ex and I divorced on good terms 8 years ago. We have a 16-yr old son; he remarried 3yrs ago to a non-US who lives in Italy; he lives in CA; never lived 2gether. 12 mos after marriage he changed life ins bene from me to new wife for immigration purposes.
6 mos later: NW is visiting him here in the US; he dies in a questionable motorcycle accident; The next day NW calls his employer for insurance benefits totaling $500k; No will; They spent a total of 3 months together; NW had the body cremated asap. Our son is left with nothing. She didnt even give any ashes to him.
We asked her to give $100k for college trust for my son or we report her for sham marriage; at first she agreed, but has since changed her mind. Her INS case continues because she was in US when he died.
