Client is a 55 year old immigrant needing a divorce. She speaks only Spanish and cannot read or write.  Her husband has been charges with sexual abuse of a minor (client’s daughter, his step-daughter).  Her daughter is in state custody, and they will not release her to our client’s custody if she is still married to her husband.  There will be no custody to dispute, as they have no children in common. Client is working with AK Institute for Justice on her immigration matter.
