- Wedding: January 2013
I am a military spouse and I know some wonderful families and some amazing soldiers, this isnt the story of one of those.
Today Im taking a dear friend to IG because her husband, whom she adores, has abandoned her, engaged himself to another woman while still married to her, may possibly still be married to a woman in another country, and has cut off all support to their daughter.
My friend is from another country. She married this man in good faith. Then one day he leaves and doesnt come back. She finds out after filing a missing persons report that he isnt missing, he went on to his next duty station without telling her and has met another woman and is planning to marry her. He is trying to kick her out of a house that she and he signed their names too, so he can bring his new fiance back to it.
When she called his chain of command because he wasnt supporting their child, chain of command reported to him and wanted to know whats up. He told them they were going through a divorce and she was crazy. He hasnt even filed and she hasnt either yet. Out of spite he reported her to the child welfare authorities for not feeding their child…uh hello, you emptied their bank accounts, took every bit of money they had.
Cant get any worse? She is a german national, he took her green card and is threatening to call INS and have her deported if she doesnt just leave him alone and stop asking for support for their daughter.
She just found out two days ago that he has a wife in another country, whom he has three children with, who he up and left 10 years ago. He doesnt support their children and is wanted in that country for abandoning them and failing to care for his spouse and children. Of course my friend is devastated.
The first wife sent her documentation to show that she was abandoned and so were their children. He changed duty stations and never told her and just left one day.
Prayers for my friend..she needs them…our goal is to prevent him from doing this to someone else and get him to pay his part for their child. He is currently engaged and living with a new woman whom we know has dual citizenship in another country, we know for a fact that he is trying to get her to go back to her home country so he can marry her there. This man is committing bigamy.
I took her yesterday to get signed up for public assistance. She definitely needs it and we called the state department to see if we could get a copy of her green card so that she can find a job.
So Bee’s I ask for your prayers that we get her some help and stop this man who calls himself a soldier.
