Live in NM!Married to American man from Nov2010, have a temporal green card for about a year. Now the situation is my husband has mental problems for about 20 years(I didn't know about it!),but he acquits himself very good to other people, trying to hide his problems,although all the neightbours,his sister and brother know it.A month ago he put me off the house,police noticed it,so I have to live at neighbour's place all last time.He did physicalogical abuse to me all the time we lived together,gave me only 300$/month for private needs,didn't allow me to study English and find a job to get salary,bought,then sold a car for me,so on.Now he first started the divorce process.I also consulted with some immigrational,divorce and other lawyers.What are my rights and what should I be afraid of?
You can talk to an attorney about a POSSIBLE VAWA claim if you can show abuse. If you get a divorce you can renew your green card and obtain the permanent green card if you can show you entered your marriage in good faith but it ended in divorce.
You have options , hire an attorney to help you

You may, or may not, qualify for VAWA.
Depending on what evidence you have, you may or may not qualify for a waiver of the joint petition to remove the conditions on your card once you are divorced.
You need to retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts and advise you accordingly.
