Hello,
I'm looking for help.
I'm married to an egyptian husband for a year and i was punched, kicked, strangled and locked in a house. He also barely gave me any foods and took almost all my money as well during my stay there saying that in Egypt ladies have to pay the money for the contents of the house and after i payed a lot of money for that, he started asking to pay for living costs as well since he claims in quran it stated that lady also has to pay half the cost of living. Even with that, he gave me almost no foods(half of the tomato and half the cup of rice twice a day was what i got).when i said or did something he didn't like, he hit, kicked,pinched all over my body including private parts. I screamed for help while he was hitting me but no one helped me which include his mother. Whole my body hurt so i asked him to take me to the hospital but he said there's nothing wrong with me so left me without any medical attention. I was livin in his house in the countryside of alexandria and he constantly locked me in a house so i couldn't even leave, but, with the help of embassy, i finally escaped from there and I've just came back to my country two days ago.
I'm originally from Japan, so, even after what he did to me, he is still asking me to sponcer him to Japan even after i escaped to here saying that i can't accept egyptian culture so we better go another country. I said to him that i can't cause i have no money now, he got angry at me and insulted me.
With these reasons, i want to divorce him and im looking for informations, but, everybody including lawyers saying that I'll have to get back to Egypt.i can't get back to him or to that country, next time i might die.

Can someone please help me.?
I don't know anyone their and i lost almost everything due being with him and being scammed by a lawyer their.
