IF your husband has abandoned you and your child and not providing any financial support, I suggest you go directly to the District Attorney in your county and explain you need child abandonment charges filed against him. Also tell them about the assault to your eye and that the police would not file a report and you want to have him prosecuted for that.
Then you should contact legal aid in your area and file for child support. This is a civil process.
If you have further questions, you may post them here and i will continue to assist. Otherwise, even if you have a subscription with JA please remember to ACCEPT my answer as that is the only way I can get credit for my time and information in this matter. Thank you and Good luck
