I don't know why you're leaving him. If it's because of abuse, get out. There are agencies that will provide you with shelter until you're able to make it on your own.
been there done that- the money they give you is not enough to live on. sad but true- and I was working 2 jobs! they count how much money you get PRETAXED, and figure that into how much your benefits will be- when how much you ACTUALLY get is what should be counted. I understand why women stay- if you don't have a college education or a family member that will let you live with them rent free till you do- it's like trying to climb out of quicksand.
women's centers ...they probably have a hotline number or something...if you really want to get out though....leave..then sort it out later...better than the alternative.
