I have obtained my marriage license from Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) for well below 6 months and now I am seeking to legally dissolve my marriage. I have been abused physically, emotionally and verbally. I am 24 years of age. How and where do I begin?

I almost left out one point. There was no sexual intercourse between us even after we were legally married. My husband said that he is not important according to him so I went along with it as well. Under what grounds will the court grant me an annulment. I'm only 24 years old and quite frankly the title "Divorcee" will look pretty ugly on me. Kindly assist. Thanks.

Being married for only 6 months, go for annulment under non-consummation but I am so sorry to tell, even if you go for annulment, the title will still be "divorcee".

I just registered my marriage few months ago, but now thinking about the annulment, may I ask, after annulment in Malaysia, will I get back the status is single or divorcee?

I just got legally married last month April 2018. If I want my marriage to be annulled is it the same thing will take place?

@jpeter, just wondering why you care about the title more than the state of your marriage, you mentioned that you have been abused, and your husband denied sexual relationship, shouldn't this be more difficult than having a 'Divorcee' title?  

It will be changed to 'married' when you married again anyway.

On top of that, Divorcee sounds kinda exoctic, don't you think?

Back to your question: " How and where do I begin?"
- file a divorce, if your case is really as how you described, abused, etc, then court will most likely grant the divorce. (Note: Under Malaysian marriage and divorce law, one can only file for divorce after 2 years of marriage, I believe this is still valid unless the law has changed)
