Subject: Sposual Sponsorship issue
  Hi, I need your advice on following issues:

My husband is a Canadian citizen. We got married 3 years ago. I Immigrated to Canada 1 month ago, on spousal sponsorship. Since I have come here he has started abusing me. He also threats me that if I tell anyone, he will get me deported. In our Indian culture, parent expects girls to stay with the husbands after marriage regardless. So they are not ready to listen to me.

My questions are

1. Can he get me deported, if I separate/ divorce from him now or tell police about it. Is there a minimum time I have to stay with him before I can seek separation/ divorce?
2. Is there any organisation where I can get help/ counselling to know why he is behaving like this and if possible to save my marriage.
3. Can I work if I separate from him? I have a SIN number.
4. Where can I get legal help in case my divorce/ separation issue goes to court? I do not have any money to pay the lawyer. Whatever I had, my husband has taken away from me.
5. Any other suggestions on my options is also requested.

I cannot go back to my country as divorced girls are considered curse and even my family is not ready to accept me back.

Ok, your husband cannot get you deported. He has ZERO jurisdiction on that.

Contact the police and report the abuse, there are shelters and several services that offer help for people in your situation.

Your immigration status is NOT at risk. Being your self a permanent resident of Canada, you have the right to live in peace and you have the right to work. You are NOT subject to stay ANY lenght of time with your husband.

Don´t accept the abuse, contact the nearest police department and they will be able to give you some information on shelters or places where you can get help if you are facing an abusive situation.

2. Is there any organization where I can get help/ counseling to know why he is behaving like this and if possible to save my marriage.

Visit settlement agencies, East Indian Women´s association (if there is one) and YWCA near you.

YES, YOU CAN!

4. Where can I get legal help in case my divorce/ separation issue goes to court? I do not have any money to pay the lawyer. Whatever I had, my husband has taken away from me.

not jumping to conclusion but the husband could be the victim... saw an article not too long ago where the husband (also from India) committed suicide when his wife left him less than a month after she landed.

I was told by my Indian friend that marriage certificate can be bought and backdated to any date you want...

Thanks a lot (in reply to: Sposual Sponsorship issue)
Thanks for the advise. I really appreciate your quick response.
I printed your response and showed it to him and i could visibly see change in his behaviour.
My idea of writing you people was to know my rights as per law and find a way to rectify my husband behaviour. I just wanted him to talk to me with respect as i do with him and do not hit me.

As for SG.
We Indian girls are home makers, not home breakers. There are all sorts of examples available. I was looking for an advice, not a judgement from you. Pl do not jump to conclusions without investigating.
