A couple of things :-
1. You are entitled to get a legal aid lawyer there if you do not have the means to engage a lawyer. But that is not preferable. Do not submit to the jurisdiction of the court, don't accept notice if you don't intend at contesting it there. Though financial settlements there are much balanced as compared to ones in India.
2. If you don't submit and go unrepresented in proceedings there - such divorce is not recognised by Indian Law.
3. You are within your right to prosecute criminally as well as civilly husband for any wrongs that he may have done. Including your right to maintenance etc.
Good Luck !
