I have a problem. I'm married to a French national. I left him a year ago due to irreconcilable difference. I wasn't able to process for annulment yet due to lack of funds.
Now here's my problem, we have a business, a shrimp farm. He was playing it safe right from the start that's why he created a corporation. You can say that I'm just a puppet CEO. Still, I'm the one who signs all important documents, like SEC reports among other things.
Now, living with him was extremely hard that's why I decided to leave. I cut off all communication with him because of so many factors. I can honestly say that he's a pretty unstable guy. That time, I didn't think much of my obligation to the company. I keeps on throwing money issues in my face, and it's hurting my pride and emotional well-being as well, that's why I just decided to leave. However, the business is still in full operation after I left.
A few days ago, one of my loyal workers said that they were dismissed without any reason. Frenchie is such an unfair employer, looking down on my people, so proud of himself. He even forced them to sign a contract to cut his ties on all legal obligations to the workers. Good thing they didn't sign. What they did though is file a case sa labor against Frenchie.
Now, I'm pretty sure that he's been using my name all these times, and I'm pretty worried about it. Here are my questions:
* Do I still have a right to the business despite the fact that I turned my back almost a year ago?
* Is it possible for a shareholder to file bankruptcy without my signature? His share to the business is only 10%, I guess. I'll have to check the papers to be certain. Mine is 59%.
* Since I left him, I think he's only here on a tourist visa. Foreigners are not allowed to run a business on a tourist visa, right?
* What else should I do? He found another foreigner whom he already allowed to live in our resthouse sa farm. I was told that the guy will be his soon-to-be business partner.
I'm really worried. I don't know what to do. I need help so bad. But I don't have sufficient cash to pay for a lawyer. I want to give this guy a lesson, and probably have him deported.
Please help me. Any advice will surely be appreciated. God bless!
