I filed a motion to vacate judgment of divorce a year after divorce has been finalized. I did this because I originally wanted an annulment but my ex threatened me, saying he will ruin my life if I try to get an annulment. Well the judge denied the motiion. Now I want to appeal the decision. When I filed for divorce, I was under duress by my ex to file it under "uncontested" circumstances so that it wouldn't look bad for his green card. He also lied on the divorce application about date of separation. I was under duress. Is there any way I can try and have divorce ruling vacated and I want to get an annulment because he married me for green card. The reason I am doing it a year later is because I have gained some sense and I don't fear him anymore. He just used me. Please help!
