I am married, its my DH's second marriage (my first). Its not going well and we have a young child. I would leave, but I don't have the money to pay a lawyer right now. I have a small amount of money, that's it. I haven't worked since our child was born. I am looking for a job right now, but the field of work I've been in is low paying. My DH is verbally abusive and creates a hellish environment for me at home. He has horrible mood swings as well, and there are other issues. His family members are cruel to me, whenever I am around them. He was married before me, for a short time, but has never wanted to talk much about what happened.
Has anyone had to split up, how was it affordable? How can I afford to leave him? Would I be able to get custody of my child? Stay in the house, or would I have to move out? I know nothing about any of this. Ideally, I'd like to keep my child and go back to school for a better career in teaching or nursing. I don't think I would ever wish to remarry.
