Ok. It's complicated. I'm getting out of an mentally abusive

Ok. It's complicated. I'm getting out of an mentally abusive marriage. I was looking into filing for divorce online. We've only been married for 2years six days. I was going to file no complaint or no fault. Because we don't anything joint wise. However, my husband bought me a car and traded my car in that was paid for but I had a loan against it. The loan was tacked onto the car payments. At first the agreement was for us to make half the payments each. Then that only lasted a few months. However, if he made the payments on my car partcial or otherwise he would lose his temper and hold it over me. So i would make the payments in full by myself and I ended up ruining my credit because I paid everything else late. The car and insurance is in his name. He wants me to pay half the car note and car payment from here on out since we are getting a divorce. However, would this be allowed in the divorce decree. If I give him the car back he can't make the payments on his own and he would have to return the car and it would ruin his credit. And leave me without a car. I don't want to have any problems. I just want it cut and dry. I've gone thru enough mental anguish. I've been advise to get out of this relationship my MD and therapist because of my health. He is an alcoholic and gets mentally abusive after he has had 3 drinks. I just want to get out of this divorce because of the mental abuse is effecting my health. I left him on and off since December 26, 2016. But officially March 22, 2017. Is possible we can have this arrangement for the car or would it be best I return it to him. The car his name and so is the insurance. My concern is if he doesn't keep his of the deal or doesn't make the payments on the car or the insurance that would make me look like I steal it. I just want this divorce to end peacefully and calmly and cooly as possible. We don't own anything together. I don't want any money from him. Or vise versa. However, another concern of mine is I own my own house and his name isn't on the deed or anything. Can I lose my house to him?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: Texas. Buick Verono bought on December 29, 2014JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I haven't filed for divorce yet. I was going to do that online when I started thinking about things and wanted to know what my legal rights and his. I want to be fair and impartial. And responsible on my part. But I'm confused because my credit is messed up because of this situation. However, the loan payment being so high is because my car was paid off but I had a loan against the car that was tacked on to the end of new car payment.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No just that I want this to be cut and dry and over soon. I don't want any further problems.
