I hope I can get advice on this as it is making me ill.
After living in Turkey for many years and being married for 8 of those I left Turkey after threats of death. I left behind my assets and came home penniless and traumatized.
My husband was Turkish and although I blocked him on all media he found me and sent threatening mail for years. Sometimes wanting me back and sometimes with threats to kill me. He had a drug and alcohol problem which I tried hard to help with throughout our marriage. He never worked and I worked sometimes 18 hour days to build up our life.
I tried to move on with my life , but it has been hard psychologically. I contacted the registry office here for them to tell me there is no record of my marriage so I am free to marry here. I don't want to but I needed to know.
My husband is now bombarding me with threats that he needs to see me in court for a divorce and take everything I own. I have found out that he had many credit cards in my name and left debts everywhere. He told everyone I left with all of the money and now wants it back. I cant tell you how much he stole from me but it was my life savings, my house sale and daughters inheritance. I want to be free of him and maybe step back in to the country I loved and left without fear of some sort of retribution.
I read that he can divorce me as I ''deserted '' him without my input. Is this true? However I feel he wont do this as he appears to believe I will have even more money and he wants it. The truth is , I own nothing, I work hard for little money and rent. I want to be free of him. Please help me someone.
