Bat crud crazy

Recommended Posts

My Thai wife and I just can't get along any more. She says she will stay married and help with visas and such, but now is saying wants a divorce because I have a live-in nurse/maid for my Parkinson Disease. Heck - my penis does not even work, it's not like my nurse is my lover.

 

1) Can she in any way force me to go to an Amphur for divorce?

2) Can I tell her she must sue me in court if she wants a divorce? If so, I will counter sue for a lot of damages

3) If we divorce, what do I do for a visa? I am from USA and am only 48.5 years old.

If you can afford the nurse perhaps you can afford the elite visa.  Or sail on. (sorry but your name said it).

Indeed, I wish I could sail away. But Parkinsons has me trapped. SSDI is not going to make much o a life in USA, and the maid is only 12k/mo. Is that enough for elite?

As far as I am aware, she only has to contact immigration and inform them the relationship is finished and you will have a problem, assuming the visa is based on marriage, you will have to find alternate visa classification.

She might do that. It is based on marriage. I have 1.5 years to go to get a retirement visa.

OP: Thanks. Yes, many of things apply. She was emotionally abusive for 1. I am more wondering if she can force me in some way to the Amphur or I can tell her "hell no. If you want a divorce, file suit for it." She will never afford it.

<deleted>? I have Parkinson's so my wife can leave me? What kind of wife leaves a man who needs her care?

OK. I am beginning to see it all... If I do not want to go to an amphur she must file with the courts and I can contest it. Yes?

That is my understanding, yes.
