I am a red identity card (IC) holder, my husband left home and stays on his own since 20 years ago, no support at all coming from him.

He converted to Islam. How can I protect myself and my status if I want to divorce him? Is there any law that after such years spouses don't leave in the same house, automatically the marriage is declared null.

If you are on still on this thread, this is my personal views.

red IC holder
Are you having a red MyPR?

Is there any law that after such years spouses don't leave in the same house, automatically the marriage is declared null.
No such law. If he cannot be contactable for 2 years, you can file for divorce on grounds of abandonment. It does not null the marriage.

If you are separated or even after 2 years of marriage, you can file for divorce. Conversion to another religion is already grounds for divorce.

how can I protect myself and my status
What is there to protect? Your status remains the same as red IC holder.
