I think this is standard fare for ex husbands.
Perhaps calling an abuse hotline and discussing with one of their counselors the best plan of action would be a good idea. They should be trained and able to help direct you to helpful resources.

Whether or not he can make anyone believe anything, you have every right to go to a women's shelter whenever you want to. He cannot make you come back. Please go there as soon as possible and please call the police station in the morning and ask to speak to a person on the Domestic Violence Unit. They can help you file charges and also get you set up with a court advocate who will help you through the court process. Do NOT go back to him. He is telling you lies to make you afraid to leave. Leaving him CAN be done! I know so many people who have done it who've had terrible partners. My prayers are with you. I am sooo glad you are smart enough to be planning on leaving him.
