I recently received a petition from Springfield District Court for annulment. My husband is claiming I have committed fraud against him to gain entry to the USA. I am a natural born Canadian Citizen, and was only in the USA because of our relationship, his statement is completely false. Shortly after our marriage, he became extremely abusive, both verbally and physically towards me. I have police reports as well as a restraining order against him, wich includes no contact. I am all for annulment or divorce, I want nothing to do with him, however I refuse to agree to committing fraud. I'm not sure how I should deal with this issue, I have read that I should answer that petition with a request to affirm the marriage.... is this infact what I need to do to proceed to an actual divorce? and if so, how do I go about doing this? (we do not have children together, nor any assets of any kind to be divided)
