Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. Please remember that there might be a delay between your follow up questions and my answers because I may be helping other customers or taking a break.

I am very sorry for your situation. No, it is not okay. What yo are describing is a criminal offense. Unfortunately, if you are in a situation where your husband is controlling and provides you with little money, you may divorce him, but aside from that, whatever you do needs to be legal. You cannot use money from a card only in his name, or an account only in his name.

If you are worried about your greencard dissolving after divorce if you have not been here two years yet, you can file the I-751 earlier, and still try to show that the marriage was indeed valid:
