First, let me begin by saying I am happy you were strong enough to leave an abusive situation. If you decide you want to seek and annulment or divorce, you should know that in Florida one of the parties, either you or your husband, must be a resident of the State of Florida for six months before filing. In addition, annulments are granted in very narrow situations and it is likely you will have to file for divorce if that is the route you choose to take.
