My husband was on a Tourist VISA when we were married... a couple of days before his VISA expired. It took me a couple of weeks to gather my belongings and furniture from my sons' house before I could move into our apt. in which a mutual friend (childhood friend of my husband's) signed the lease --- I am in-between jobs.
Third week our marriage was consummated. During the next 2 weeks, husband complained about the expense of the apt. and food. Then he took both Marriage Certificates from me and said he was going to file for divorce. Also, after our marriage he tells me that he married me strictly for business and sex. I married for companionship ... we are both in our mid fifties.
In the beginning, I was researching how to file for petition for him but he was always vague on getting the copies of needed divorce papers, etc.
I left the apt. when he said he wanted a divorce. He said I could come back on 2 conditions: (1) no sex within or outside our marriage and he did not want me to touch him (guess hugs) nor see me naked; and, (2) quit smoking (he knew I smoked before we married).
I want an anullment. Can he use our Marriage Certificate illegally - such as getting a job, etc? I don't want to be involved in anything wrong, but haven't any money to file, yet. Our mutual friend has since moved in with my husband and has ordered that I take my stuff -- and my family does not help me to move and I have no funds.
My stuff is still at the apt. and I am so afraid that I will lose everything.
