    I am wondering how I go about finding out information on my boyfriend who was arrested nov.16th,2010 in the dalles or. His name is Eulogio Arzate Pineda. I know he had a green card, but for some reason I heard he was being deported. I am searching every where I can for information of where he might be, or how i would be able to get a hold of him. Im not really understanding all of this, so if you could please send me info of whats going on with his status i would be very thankful

  11. Lily Pineda Sat, Apr 16 2011 5:44 PM

    nikki, you don't need to find out more information about your so called boyfriend. this is his daughter! and you got his name wrong just to tell you. yes he did have his green card, but because of heather he's going to get deported. and you don't need to understand anything anymore because he said that he wants nothing to do with you or any other skank. him and my mother are going to remarry so if you don't mind step aside! and if you want information why don't you ask me instead of posting it online? but anyway I don't want to make this long. but I told his you posted this and he said to tell you that he doesn't want anything to do with you or anyone that he loves my mom and the daughters he has with my mother.

  37. Bonita Tue, Feb 21 2012 6:33 PM

    The steps for marrying someone in the detention center are: 1. Obtain a marriage license form (I have been told there are some in the library at the detention center. If they are all gone you must obtain them from the courthouse.) 2.Your fiance must fill out the marriage license form and have it notarized by the notary public staff person at the detention center. 3. Once the person in detention has filled out the form and had it notarized they need to give it to you/mail it to you. 4. Fill out your portion of the form. Take it to the courthouse and get your marriage license. 5. Give the license to the person in detention so they can provide it to the detention center staff. 6. Once the detention center staff assign you a date for your ceremony call me to arrange it. (360) 515-0727. 7. I will perform your ceremony at the detention center. You must provide your own 2 witnesses.

  38. Bonita Tue, Feb 21 2012 6:37 PM
