Thanks for your question. An annulment would be bad for your here. It would be as if you were never married here. If the marriage gave you priority or was the basis of you plan for imigration it could be bad for you.
They won't deport you because of the annulment but it might affect whether you get to stay here legally. Sorry for the situation here but this would not help you thats for sure.
after the annulment is done, what legal steps would i need to take to stay in states, the marriage was in good faith are thier any exception to the rules?
You would need a visa to enter legally and then apply for residency here. She may not be able to annul here as annulments are pretty limited in nature such as underage, previous marriage, fraud, etc. Might end up being a regular divorce. You would need to countact your country's embassy in US about applying for a visa here
