 There has to be somewhere you and your kids can go (around here it's Oasis) it's a shelter for women and kids in abusive situations like yours. Then, you can stay there and get all the legal stuff worked out. Do you have some family that can help you and keep you safe? I will be praying for you!!!

 I think you do have to pay to file for divorce, here in Michigan  you do.

  If you have children, you have to do one year of separation before you can file for divorce(in most states) I've never heard of a secret divorce - unless you get a quickie in Las Vegas, I don't know how legitimate that could or would be.

You'd best contact a divorce lawyer (or call Legal Aid) in your area. I think he has the right to contest the divorce.
