You cannot prevent your husband from filing for divorce. California is a no fault state so either party can request a divorce. You may request support if you are disabled. Additionally if your first husband did not in fact die, then there could be an issue are to whether the marriage is a valid marriage. In that case your husband may be able to obtain an annulment.
