First, there is no reason to be scared. Your safety is the most important thing. I assume you have a conditional (2 year) green card. If you get divorced, you will be able to file an I-751 petition to remove the conditions on your residency by yourself. You may also be able to do so based on a cruel treatment waiver, but I would need to know more information. Right now, concentrate on your safety, but do see an experienced attorney who can properly guide you.

It all depends on whether you can prove you entered the marriage in good faith and not just to get a green card.
