Go to your local Job and Family Services office and ask about applying for Legal Aid.

Close your credit card accounts and go get money out of the bank. I've seen TOO MANY cases of spouses draining checking accounts or maxing out credit cards, leaving the other person in financial jeopardy. Find an attorney ASAP. Sit down and make a list of exactly what you want in terms of custody, property, finances, health insurance, pensions, etc. Get everything drawn up and legally filed before he can do anything crazy. Filing immediately for child support was a very wise move.
