I am seeking an annulment from a 4 year marriage to an resident alien who proposed to me three days before he said that we needed to get married or he would be deported. My husband obtained my consent to marriage upon fraud, duress and coercion, as my current lawyer has made the case for. My husband filed for divorce 4 years and 1 day after marriage, which clears him of any INS problems. My husband drafted a PMA the night before the marriage and I had no time to seek legal advise as to the content of the PMA. I have come to learn only recently that it doesn't protect me at all but protects all his assets from me. I have been left penniless and am unemployed because of chronic illness. I spent the only investments I had during the marriage paying half of shared rent, utilities and expenses and have no savings or income. I cannot afford the growing expense of the divorce. I was taking prescribed antidepressants and a benzodiazepine for my chronic illness at the time of the marriage and was not mentally capable to sign a PMA or to consent to marriage. Do I have grounds to annul the marriage and how do I do it in the middle of divorce proceedings?
