You need to immediately sit down with a family lawyer and begin talking about the divorce process. He can be ordered to maintain the bills/home and also pay child support and possibly spousal support, but none of this can happen without a Judge ordering it. If you can't afford a lawyer, see if you can get an appointment with Legal Aid, who can give you free legal help. If you're near a law school, they also often have free clinics. Do not wait to do this.
