Hello ladies, need some input plss,

Have been married 9 yrs, have 2 kids 8 and 2. Always have been a stay at home mom, husband is a doctor. He is very controlling, abusive from first day of marriage. I have never received even 20 dollars from him for personal expenses, not allowed to go grocery shopping let alone go buy stuff for kids.everything is done by him. He hasn't bought me a single thing like clothes and all theogony, my parents support me throughout, brother buys me stuff, gives me little monthly allowance.due to all this I left him for 4 yrs in between but later returned when he promised to change, this was 3 yrs ago and that's when my younger baby was born.but things got worse by the day and now my elder child was seeing all this control and abuse too. So I decided to divorce him, family has helped me with moving out, renting new aptt, lawyers fees etc., been 3 months looking for a job, husband has not paid any child support etc, and I let the kids visit him alternate weekends.he makes their trips disneyland experiences by eating out, going to aquarium, pool etc, but didn't bother to buy them winte clothes for new season, for that I m borrowing money from family, now he is threatening me of getting full custody of my kids, selling the marital house and all my stuff in there, please tell me being a dedicated mother all this while wd I loose my kids, my elder one is award winner in all subjects in school and only I have raised her in terms of studying cooking etc, plss help am still so scared of this man.
