You should arrange a consultation with an attorney and ask about the possibility of your husband being required to pay your legal costs if you can prove he is abusive. Ask friends, co-workers, relatives, neighbors, etc., if any have heard of any lawyers who did a good job representing clients in your position.

Also, many larger cities have programs where you can get an attorney to help you for free if you can show need - which is most likely you can in this type of situation. In addition, there is assistance at shelters for abused/battered women and a person can always contact one of these types of shelters and they can direct you to an attorney that can help you. Look up the phone number for the state bar in the state where you live. You can Google something like "state bar of name of your state" and call or email them. They can provide you with information for "pro bono" attorneys (attorneys that do work for free). There are lots of options out there so don't give up and don't stay with someone who is abusive to you. Life is too short for that and no one deserves to live like that.
