Anjelica Huston is back in court pleading for help in collecting money owed to her from the government.
According to court documents obtained by Radar, the 70-year-old actress is pleading for help collecting money owed to her.
As we first reported, earlier this month, Anjelica filed an petition to establish fact, date, and place of marriage in Los Angeles Superior Court.
She says she is the surviving spouse of Robert Graham and is entitled to “survivors’ benefits” from the Social Security Administration.
However, Anjelica Huston has made a claim with the Social Security Administration to collect the benefits, but the Social Security office requires a marriage certificate to substantiate the actress’ status as Robert’s widow.
The problem is no marriage license was recorded for Anjelica and Robert’s 1992 wedding. Anjelica filed a declaration in court explaining the situation.
She explains before her wedding “Robert and I appeared before Judge Mariana R. Pfaelzer, a federal judge and a friend of Robert” to have him complete the marriage license.
The actress says the judge said she would submit the license to the Los Angeles County Recorder.
Anjelica says she was married to Robert from 1992 until his death in 2008. She claims to have learned the license was never submitted when she went to collect the benefits.
She informed the court the judge in question died in 2015. “I never discussed this matter with her or Robert before her death, as I believed that all parties had done everything necessary to authenticate my marriage.”
“At all times since Robert and I appeared before Judge Pfaelzer to have officiated at our marriage, I believed that I was lawfully married to Robert, and Robert and I conducted ourselves as husband and wife," Anjelica added.
The actress submitted the copy of the marriage license that was supposed to be submitted. She also attached a copy of articles mentioning her as Robert’s widow and letters written by friends and family.
A hearing has been set for later this month where Anjelica can make her case before the judge.
