You have no chance of being approved for a Green Card under these facts. You really need to retain an experienced criminal and immigration attorney immediately or face deportation and possibly incarceration.
Although that is not uncommon, it could mean a divorce is on his mind, or it could mean he is planning to take care of you in some other fashion, but there is no way to know what his intentions are.
