I will try and keep this as short as possible. My husband and i had a huge fight yesterday and he put his hands on me i don't want to get into the gruesome details it wasn't horrible but it was enough to open my eyes. this was done in front of our four kids. I have two kids and he has two kids we don't have any together. when ever we fight he always reminds me that his two are his and i can't be near them. I am a SAHM and have raised his two since they were 2 and 1 and they are now 6 and 8. bio mom walked out on them. My hubby is miltary and yesterday he did everything in his power to try and get me kicked out even tho he was the one that startes. my son was the one that called the cops and i am so proud of him for it. I guess my question is mainly for military people that have been thru this or any advice that would help. I have never been thru a divorce and don't know what my rights are. He has me so scared to do anything but i can't ;et him walk all over me and scare me into thinking that i don't deserve anything. He always resorts to this is mine not yours b/c he is the sole bread winner right now. I don't have a income and not sure what my rights are and i also have been told by friends conflicting things. My friends are split 50/50 on me trying to work it out with him but i don't think i should but if it comes down to i have to due to having no other options then i need advice on how to handle that as well. please help and don't judge i just need advice. thank you!
****UPDATE*** i left the house with half of everything and have just recently moved back in thats why i have not been on here. There were stipulations to the move back in i was with no contact with him for a week and then only text then on phone. I have started counseling and the kids were already in so they will continue with that and today he and i have a appt. with a marriage counselor. I am taking it very slow and have had numerous talks with the children and him. I am not guaranteeing that the marriage will work just want to give it a try to at least say that i did everything i could before divorce happens. So we will see how this goes. Thank you all for your support and help.****

You need to get recommendations of attorneys from your friends or relatives, then get their numbers and call them and ask if they give free consultations. I have provided you a link of an article that tells you all the things you will need and what you will need to ask them. I hope it works out for you. Stay strong for your kids, and God bless you. I know it must be so hard for you right now.
