Customer Question

Good morning,
Briefly this is my situation I am married with 3 dependents my husband and I have our own successful business and we work from our home.
I have decided after various attempts to make our marriage work that I would like to separate, finally after 6 months of living virtually seperatly but in the same house he has told me I can go but I must never set foot in the house again or have anything to do with the business's also among other threats he says my eldest child who is 14 will have to leave his private school.
I have no idea of any of rights and am not easily walking away as there is far more details to give but that's a brief outline.
Kind regards
