Madam you can file application under section 125 of crpc for maintance and you need to illuminate your situation before the magistrate and he will definitely consider if he find any merit in such.
Further if your husband want to contest divorce, he need to give reasons grounds which laid in section 13 of Hindu Marriage Act (if you are Hindu then only applicable) regarding the same, if he wont able to do so then court will consider on its merits.
Court definitely consider your plot of defense too.

You can get maintenance if your income is very less compared to your husband's income. You can contest the divorce with expert help. That in divorce matters all details are needed. Advise on incomplete facts can be very harmful. If the divorce is filed after your FIR you claim it to be a counterblast.
