We were married in October 2012 here in the US, while I was living in Ethiopia. I finally moved in here since January 2014 and got my green card as of August 2014. We had disagreements in multiple family issues, money handling past relationships I had before meeting her.
Things are worsening now and she wants me to move out from the house we are living together. She is also pushing me to agree on a mutual consent divorce. She is threatening me over my residence renewal ( request for removal of conditional permit) if I am not willing to agree with all her demands. My questions are:
1. Do I have to move out?
2.Should I agree on the divorce?
3.Do these things have an impact on my permanent residence process?
4.Is there any hope to get consultation to resolve our problem and make peace?
Depending on what assets/debts/children you may have to fight about, your best interest may be served by an agreement. You do not necessarily have to stay married to have the condition on your residence removed. You can ask your wife if she would consider marital counseling with the hope of restoring your marriage.

You do not have to move out unless you want to. You should talk with a family law attorney. You could also go to counseling even if by yourself. Search for a lawyer on Find a Lawyer tab at top if page.

I am not giving you specific legal advise and there is no attorney-client relationship created by my answer to your question. The choice of an attorney is an important decision that you must make and that choice should not be made upon adverting alone.
