I have been married to a USC for 7 months and got my conditional GC last week. The truth is simple; after moving in with him&his family 7 mo ago , he has turned very demeaning and abusive towards me. I have tried sitting with him to communicate, but since he lacks of intelligence and education, he can't solve anything without yelling and throwing stuff at me. He insults me, pushes me around and breaks my stuff everytime there is a probem.(him getting a bad haircut is a problem) Before getting married&moving with him, he was so sweet, but he says that he is just very sick of me now.we were planning on traveling to South America for 5months But my gut tells me not to and I know that this isn't right. Can someone tell me what different steps can I take please?
The good news is that immigration allows for divorce and still maintain permanent residency. Consult an attorney about the process because there is a 3 month window (1 year 9 months - 2 years after the date listed on your green card that you have been a resident since) to file Form I-751 to maintain your permanent residency with a divorce.
