You should not be afraid to come forward if you are being abused. It is only if you will call the police or make a report with police, that your husband will be arrested and charged, otherwise, if you file an application with immigration, they are not in the enforcement field, so that they will be looking at your application. Contact experienced immigration attorney to discuss your options.
