Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.
You can attempt to file for a protective order; however, if he is only verbally abusive and you do not fear for your physical safety or the safety of your children, then you care not able to obtain such a court order. If you can show that he is a danger to you or your children, then you may be able to have a court issue a restraining order that makes him leave your residence.
If you initiate divorce proceedings, you may be able to get the court to grant you a temporary order granting you exclusive use of your residence. You should contact a local divorce attorney in your area who can help you manage you through this process and file the required papers on your behalf.
