What to do if my husband abandoned me after he got his green card?

We seperated when he started acting mean. He was never home; he was always off with friends and women. The things he did where not very nice. After he got his green card he was cruel but before that I thought he really loved me (which was not true). I have not heard from him but did her from others that he is with another woman. It does not surprise me; he was never home. I begged him to change but he did not care. I will divorce him as soon as I get money. What can I do about the green card? Can it be taken away. Can I take action?

If you really believe that the marriage was not bona fide from his end and that he only  married you for the green card, I would suggest that you report him to USCIS.  You cannot force them to do anything like take away his green card or deport him but they will probably look into the matter and especially if you have supporting documentation/evidence of his abusive behavior toward you and the fact that he took off as soon as he got the green card.
