Want to leave....scared of custody battle

I cant believe I am typing this. I am the breadwinner of my family, strong professional woman. Mom to an AMAZING 4 year old. Tired of being verbally abused by my husband for the past 4 years. Just started a journal this summer to document his abuse. This is my fault -- We got pregnant the weekend we broke up in 2010 & ultimately tried to make it work. I come from a broken home & did NOT want that for my son. My son adores his father. Im just tired of the verbal abuse. He can be hard on our 4 year old too - all documented. i want to leave but I am afraid of him......and a custody battle. I left all my family to move to NC. I work from home so it was an easy decision. But now I want to go back only because if I left him, I don't see how I could stay here and have to deal with all his friends & family. if I left him he would lose the house (its not in my name, just his. he bought it from his parents before we ever met) HELP I am lost & miserable.

Have you been to marital counseling?

If so, and it hasn't been effective, or if he won't go, LEAVE. File immediate temporary custody, with a pending case for custody, support and visitation, and leave.
