How do I divorce and get alimony from my bigamist husband?

My husband and I are both from Algeria and have lived here in the U.S. We both have dual citizenship and he regularly goes back to Algeria to visit family and do business there. I found out that he started a relationship with another woman in Algeria and married her on one of his recent trips. I want to divorce him but he says I cannot because under Algerian law, he can have more than one wife. I do not consent to this marriage of his. What needs to be done to divorce him and because he makes all of the money in our household, can he be required to pay me alimony and support me? I was a teacher in Algeria but gave up that job to come to the United States and raise his children.

Can my son get emancipated if divorce his mother?

My wife and I are going through a very bitter divorce and my son has turned against both of us. He is 16 years old and says if we don’t stop the fighting and drop the divorce he is going to emancipate himself from both of us and live on his own. We live in Chicago. Is emancipation legal in Illinois and if so, can my son pursue it during my divorce from his mother? What would he have to show to a court to get an emancipation granted? He doesn’t have a job and my wife and I still pay for everything for him.

Will a prenuptial agreement control custody of my child?

I am from Chicago and my soon to be husband is from Morocco. He is here in the United States on a work visa. I am pregnant with our first child and we will be married before the baby is born. My fiancé wants me to sign a prenup that says no matter what happens with our marriage, I will grant him equal custody of our child. I am concerned about doing this and he is able to take the child to Morocco once his name is on the birth certificate, and possibly even register the child as a Moroccan citizen? Can child custody be included in a prenup and is there any way to include language preventing my future husband from taking our child out of the country without my permission, whether we are married or not?
