That's the case actually. We did live together for 11 months until he got his conditional green card and took off with excuses after which I filed for divorce. No joint bank accounts either. He pretty much used me, but I did this divorce alone and through research because we had no assets or kids together, so I figured that why pay a lawyer to fill to a few forms for me, which I could do myself. So will the divorce route I took instead of the fraud raise questions for the immigration judge when reviewing my ex's immigration fraud? Or it should not be an issue, since many people who have been use take that route too? It's just I was told that taking the annulment route is going to be a big headache for me and I might not even convince the judge that it was fraud. With all the evidence I have now, I would have succeeded, but not before. Thanks.

It is true that annulment actions are big headaches if contested; you need to prove a basis for the annulment that you would not need otherwise in a divorce action. Practically speaking, you may have made the right choice. However, if you want to stand for the principle, you should have filed an annulment, which you can still do by amending the pleadings.
