i am afraid your husband has a right to live in the matrimonial home until there is either a financial agreement between you of the decree absolute is granted in divorce proceedings
however if your husband is violent towards you then you can get an exclusion order ensuring that he is no longer able to enter the house
i suggest that you seek face to face legal advice as soon as possible
