What are my options if I am not a US citizen and my spouse abuses me?

I am currently in the process of attaining my green card and becoming a permanent resident of the US. My problem is that my spouse has become abusive and dominating, to the point that I feel unsafe for my own life. If I'm correct, getting a divorce would mean the canceling or prolonging of my citizen status. I would like to know what options I have in front of me for this type of case.

    So sorry that you face such problems. Abuse like this is intolerable. This web site is not a good substitute for immigration counsel in this situation. You need to consult immediately with immigration counsel because your options may depend on many details that you should discuss only with legal counsel
