    Just speculating...nothing solid to go on.
    It also could have been he was told about the online affair, or not. It would definitely cause for friction between them.

    I think the bigamy may speak to immagration status, and more importantly why certain services that should have been available to Zahra were not sought out and taken advantage of. I feel EB did not pursue medical care/coverage for Zahra because of the shaky status of the marriage and citizenship. MOO

    I'd really like the hear how this might affect AB's immigration status. Maybe one of the lawyers will weigh in.

    Well, we don't really know that there WAS an online affair, do we? We have no idea what the nature of that relationship was...could be something perfectly innocent.

    We need a lawyer thread for this forum so we can ask them that question. And more questions. I'm surprised we don't have one yet.

    I wonder too about this, and I'm hoping his immigration status doesn't affect this case in a way that benefits him. Then again, I don't think Australia wants him back.

    Actually no we don't know. Yet it did warrant enough concern for her daughter to call it one.

    Didn't EB say in one of her letters "my soon to be ex-husband". Does she think she's legally married? Is she legally married?

    Certainly a question I cannot answer.

    I stand corrected it said "relationship".


    In a Catawba County courtroom Wednesday, Amber Fairchild, 25, described her mother, Elisa Baker, as a potentially violent and unstable woman who has severed ties with her N.C. family and begun an online relationship with a man in London.

    IMO, until further charges are filed with regards to Zahra, the thought of Elisa being charged with "bigamy" is a good way of keeping her in jail, along with the other charges related or unrelated to Zahra.

    Same goes with Adam as his charges are "unrelated" to Zahra, and IF Adam violated the terms under the laws of immigration, he could be arrested and sit in jail until LE pulls everything together regarding what happen to Zahra and who did what to Zahra. JMO

    In addition to the possible bigamy threatening AB's immigration status, I also posted a link in the AB immigration status thread last night to an article saying something about his visa possibly not being valid anymore.

    it's post #40 here:

    I believe the marriages play a significant role in this case.
    1) If she was legally married to AY @ the time she married AB - the marriage to AB would not be recognized legally. (We have now seen evidence of the divorce filed some 13 months after she married AB in Aussie).
    2) AB would not be able to stay in the US on his Visa over a specific period of time (to my knowledge) - how was he staying here on a work visa? Through being "married" to EB?
    3) Their income level (that has been reported) would have probably qualified them for SSI payments for Zahra and a medical coupon due to her disabilities- however there are many legal factors that would come into play due to their non-citizen status.
    4) To my knowlege - they did not have medical insurance on Zahra - even through the State may have been able to provide coverage for her regardless of her citizen status - had the state been made aware.
    5) Zahra would have had to show immunization records to enroll in school (at least I think). Here's where I think the school tried to help Zahra obtain the hearing aids. I know that most insurances will not cover hearing aids - however for a child I think that would be a significant factor for growth and development - IMO a hearing aid for a child could be seen as medically necessary as the prosthesis.
    6) Since AB had been working in the US - did he obtain a SS card? Would he then qualify for SSI payments for his daughter?
    7) All of the above would be directly related to verifying the marriage was legal.

    I have to ask..If Adam didn't know that EB was still married (hence the brother thing with AY) then could he even be charged with bigamy..or would that not give him grounds for an annulment?

    I have no idea..
