Praise be to Allaah.
put this question to Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Jibreen, may Allaah preserve
him, who answered as follows:
should ask for an annulment of the marriage in the city where she has
moved to, on the grounds that her husband is absent and is not sending her
any money to live on. This annulment will take the place of a divorce. And
Allaah knows best.
