My younger sister got married in April 2007 and it was an arranged marriage with Tamil temple wedding.The groom works in Newjersy and is currently a greencard holder.Only 2 days after the marriage he left for US and the marriage was never registered.
The boy was already married to a US citizen which only me and my sister knew before and none from my family.At the time of marriage his divorce decree was pending due to which we did not insist him to get the marriage registered.The marriage was a mistake and from the begining we all know that it will not work but only due to society we went ahead with the marriage.Till date even they have not consumated the marriage and my sister is living with her in-law.
I spoke to him last time and he said he don't want to continue with this marriage but he will also not apply for divorce.
Now please let me know what can we do.
It is impossible for us to prove his previous US marriage from India and even if we prove then my sisters marriage will become void as marriage before giving divorce is considered invalid.
As me and my sister previously knew about his marriage but none other in my or his family in this situation can we say we only came to know about this now and file a case of fraud or cheating ?
Is it possible for my sister to file 495 ?
Is it possible for filing maintenance even when my sister is working?
On what ground can we file for divorce ?
I want her to get settled and married again so don't want to run after court cases as someone told me if the boy is greencard holder then the case would take ages and he can easily fight sitting there without trouble and we have to keep running around court and its waste of time.
