My question involves marriage law for the State of: Louisiana.
I have a female friend, who is from Honduras, who has lived in the U.S. for a few years, about 5, under a pass to work in the US. She recently married an American and has started her process (paperwork) to become a US citizen, by marriage. They were happy during their 2 year courtship, but now, she is suffering emotional and physical abuse by her husband. She has only been married for 4 months. Can she opt out of the marriage and still retain her status applying to become a US citizen? Or will both the marriage and US citizenship application both be annulled? Thanks for any advice.
