The process of marriage annulment of my son, US Citizen to Taiwanese citizen and US Permanent Resident,to is not going to be just a simple divorce. It is very expensive, as a lawyer is required, private investigators and experts, including a Mandarin Chinese interpreter. That kind of money is far beyond me or my son’s modest resources to hire a lawyer to pursue an annulment and fighting false accusations. Therefore, I make this appeal and pray that there are compassionate people willing to donate some money to provide true justice and due process for someone caught up in this type of situation.
Donations of any amount are welcome, and every contribution will be a priceless gift. If any amount of the donations is unused, it will be donated for similar cases to achieve justice for someone else who does not have the required resources, just as we are in need of.
My son and I are the naturalized U.S. citizen, whom have immigrated to this country from our former home in the Ukraine.My son met a fellow Taiwanese student in college in 2007, when they both were 18 years old.She was in this country on a temporary student visa. In 2013, after graduating from a nursing school, she could not find a sponsorship from any hospitals in U.S to grant her a work visa, and thus had to return to Taiwan in 2014 when her student visa expired.
Moreover, she was not able to change her visa status, even after having an “anchor baby”. In 2010, and after two years of their relationship, she had become pregnant, and it was apparent to most people that this was how she determined she might be able to stay in America. Both her parents in Taiwan and I were kept in the dark about her pregnancy until the child was born. She told everyone that she did not even know that she was pregnant after that.My son accepted his daughter as a real man and caring father should, and did not run away from his responsibilities as many other might. The girl was born premature and with a deformity of a double cleft pallet. My son spent endless nights caring for his first-born, and caring for her after she endured two reconstructive surgeries. I was so proud of him. As a matter of fact, no one in her Taiwanese clan in the Taiwan and some relatives living in America already, except the woman’s parents, my son and myself, knew that the child were born.
Nonetheless, to my awe after 7 years of a difficult relationship, they got married. As my son later explained to me, he hoped the relationship would get better if she got what she wanted – to marry my son. They had another daughter two years ago. It was obvious for many who knew them that she had manipulated him to do her bidding. But since the first day of the marriage the relationship grew more toxic, with constant discussions of divorce and the children’s custody, and finally ending up in wild accusations against my son.
By virtue of the marriage, of course, she obtained a permanent green card.As it turns out, the permanent green card and path to U.S. citizenship was her real goal.She had withdrawn from the marriage step by step, until last December when it escalated into false accusations. She even managed to get a court order of protection a few days ago against my son, to prevent him from seeing the two children.But she did not file for the divorce as that would not satisfy one of requirements of USCIS, and will hurt her application for the citizenship.
The worst part of this is that she used my son and their daughters, my granddaughters, as a bargaining chip which was just collateral damage for her goals. She has already done so much damage to my son and the children; it is beyond the imagination of most people. Enough to say he lost his job as a result. That is the primary reason to ask for the kindness of donations on his behalf.
The divorce, an annulment, gives the USCIS another opportunity to look into my son’s marriage when his wife will try to apply for U.S. citizenship. Just reporting her to ICE as a fraudulent marriage was not enough. There are hundreds, if not thousands of marriage frauds for ICE to investigate, and it takes a very long time to do that, and time is of the essence for my son.
So my son needs to start the process and the only recourse is to file for an annulment of the marriage and seek custody of the children.
