‘husband does not fulfill any of his duties’

Q: As Salam Alaikum Imam Sahab,

I apologize for being eager, and looking forward to receive reply on divorce question submitted last week asking again.
What a muslim woman should do if her husband does not fulfill any of his duties towards his wife, they are seperated as he has left home and is not willing to divroce her for next 7/8 yrs? How can she get divorce? She is willing to forgive/give up mehr but if husband is not agreed what are her options?
